I am a playwright living in Brooklyn, NY.
I'm a current resident playwright at New Dramatists and a 2012-2013 Playwright Fellow at the Lark Play Development Center. My work has been developed at The Kennedy Center, The Women's Project, PlayPenn, Theater J, and The Working Theater, among others.
Honey Brown Eyes (Working Theater, NYC Theater J, Washington, DC) won the 2009 Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play or Musical and was published in the February 2009 issue of American Theatre Magazine.
The Electric Baby (Quantum Theatre) has received development at PlayPenn, and received the Women in Arts and Media 2011 Collaboration Award. Two River Theater Company will produce the play in 2013, directed by May Adrales, followed by a production by Rivendell Theatre Ensemble in Chicago.
Save Me received the Baltimore Playwrights Festival Carol Weinberg Award for best new play, and won the Phoenix Theatre’s National Playwriting Competition, and will receive a student production at The Barrow Group in NYC, in September 2012.
My collaborative work includes The Fear Project (The Barrow Group) and 167 Tongues (Queens Theatre in the Park) You Are Now The Owner of This Suitcase (Theatre 167) and We Play For the Gods (The Women's Project at The Cherry Lane Theatre). My short plays have been produced in numerous festivals around the country, and are published in two PlaySource anthologies.
I've received fellowships and grants from Playwrights Realm, the Dramatists Guild and the Sewanee Writers Conference and am a Women's Project Lab alum. I am currently working on commissions for Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Epic Theater Ensemble, and The Working Theater in NYC.
I graduated from Connecticut College (Phi Beta Kappa, cum laude), and live in Brooklyn with my husband and twin sons.
