It’s been an incredible year of having two of my new plays produced here in New York City, and now I’m off to see two of my older one-acts presented as staged readings in Minneapolis! As part of an Emerging Playwrights Exchange between Leviathan Lab and MU Performing Arts, Quarter Century Baby and Something Blue will be performed as part of MU’s New Eyes Festival of New Works.
It’s the first time my plays will be performed outside of NYC and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be introduced to a new theater community! It will be exciting to share my work with a brand new audience and I’m eager to see how they’ll all respond to it – there will even be a talkback after the performances! Both plays were originally produced by Diverse City Theater Company in 2010, so it will be nice to hear these plays with fresh ears. Who knows, I may even be inspired to revisit these short plays and expand them into full-lengths!
So if you happen to be in the Twin Cities area this weekend, come on down and check out the festival! There is a great roster of other plays being performed, and I feel pretty honored to be in such good company.
