I’ve had to keep this under wraps for a while now, but it’s officially announced so I can finally share that I’m a recipient of the third annual Parity Commission this year, alongside incredible playwriting badass Gina Femia! The awards ceremony was last week, followed by a table read of my winning play, Cercle Hermaphroditos, and I’m already so grateful to have met so many wonderful actors and playwrights! Very excited to continue this collaboration with a company doing such vital work! Here’s a brief article from American Theatre magazine about the commission:

The culmination of my time as part of the Confluence Regional Writers Project is right around the corner! My brand new play, And Certain Women, will be part of the Confluence New Play Festival November 20-23. Mine’s on Friday the 22nd. It’s a great group of playwrights (and scripts!) If you happen to be in the St. Louis area, come check it out! Should be a blast!

So I still can’t really get my head around this, but my play Cercle Hermaphroditos was a finalist for the 2019 O’Neill National Playwrights Conference! Honored to be in such good company!
