“Writing is freedom. It removes social constructs to give way to our most raw self, the “unknown”. This freedom gives my writing spontaneity, possibility and humor.”

This original short play has gone through many faces. Born in a classroom evolved as a workshopped play at Williamstown in 2019.

An oblivious character hits rock bottom. At the lowest point of her life she learns of a world full of understanding, empathy, friendship and alcohol. 

R.I.P.

Another short-play, this one was born out of fear. I wanted to explore what it meant to have the happiest day in a place I fear. This play was also translated in Spanish and produced at Microtheatre Miami.

A traditional person has the most iconic come-to-self moment in the most unlikely of places. Can they get the person they love most to understand?
