I create performance works that celebrate words, movement, visuals and sound –
while telling stories that inspire people to look up, look sideways and look closer.
My plays focus on shifting gender roles
and new definitions of family and identity.
I write stories rich in humor and humanity, that celebrate imagination and characters who burst boundaries.
I thrive on the energy of collaboration. I work with actors, dancers, sound and visual artists to create performances where words shift and grow, and fire everyone’s invention. A performance starts with the spark of a script and becomes a living work that everybody has a hand in and that none of us could have imagined alone.
At a time when everything is labeled, it’s vital to me that my plays embrace diverse casting. And wherever I can, I create characters open to actors of any gender and a range of ages. One of my short plays has been performed by two men in their 40s, by two college-age women and by non-binary actors – and each pair made it real.
