We're not in Missouri anymore...
Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending five days in the lovely Independence, Kansas home of Pulitzer prize-winning playwright William Inge and host of the William Inge Festival Play Lab. As one of twenty playwrights I got to meet honoree Carlyle Brown, and receive feedback on my play RANK from panelists Beaufield Berry and William "Missouri" Downs. I also participated in the festival as an actress. It was a fantastic chance to meet fellow playwrights and take a mini vacay. (Fun fact: William Inge actually taught at my alma mater from 1938 to 1943.)
Now that I'm back in KC I'm looking towards the next project...
WICKED CREATURES will be receiving a staged reading on June 13th in New York City as part of the First Breath New Play Reading Series, presented by the Harold Clurman Division and Stella Adler Studio for Acting.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Please note: there will be no late seating! Readings will be presented at the Stella Adler Studio, 31 West 27th Street, Floor 2, NYC 10001.
Synopsis: Three Victorian women living on the outskirts of society kidnap a young scholar and force him to take part in their scientific experiments, all in pursuit of creating the perfect female contraceptive.
"About First Breath: One year ago the Harold Clurman Playwrights Division launched a search for new plays by women playwrights.
