FEATURED WORKS

“A PLAYWRIGHT WITH A TALENT TO ENLIGHTEN AND PROVOKE”
— The New York Times
WHAT I DO
Playwright Typewriter
As A Dramatist
I write plays that examine American culture—our obsessions with image and privilege, our fundamental sexism, implicit racism, and propensity to violence, and ultimately, our collective optimism. In my work, tragedy and comedy exist side by side because they exist that way in life. The play is funny until it isn’t—and at that point, the larger questions are revealed.
Playwright Books
As A Teaching Artist
As the author of more than a dozen plays for young actors, I’ve been privileged to work as an artist in residence at a series of theatre programs and private and public schools around the country. I am available for short-term residencies, as well as one-day workshops and longer-term residencies.

THE STORY: 

Colorado 1982: Thwarted lust and bruised ambition rule in Dan Briggs’ bar. Judy, the quick-witted bartender, never lets her disability get in the way of what she wants – except when it comes to Dan, who only has eyes for Bonnie, a comely waitress with dreams of becoming a Playboy centerfold. Unknown to Dan, Bonnie’s ticket to fame relies on an elaborate scheme–cooked up by his best buddy Chet–involving a classic motorcycle and a secret photo shoot. Chet’s plans seems to be working out – until the photos of Bonnie fall into the wrong hands.
