While the return of spring always makes me feel like the future is possible, I am especially grateful for the news that my two most recent works, One Man’s Trash and Help - Not Just Anybody, will receive productions in near and far flung locations. In case you’re in the neighborhood, here are the details:
One Man’s Trash will be part of the Millibo Art Theatre’s Women’s Theatre Festival in Colorado Springs, CO, April 11 - 28. Get tickets here.
When volatile Cee, a white, upper-middle class divorcée visits an exhibit of discarded object art, she is confronted by an unexpected blast from her past and reacts with less than complete restraint. As Nate, an African American security guard, attempts to intervene, their verbal sparring over what separates and unites, and what it means to be trash, leads to unexpected consequences.
Help - Not Just Anybody, which recently received a staged reading as part of Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Bite-Size: An Evening of Micro Theatre, will be performed at the Lakeshore Players Theatre 15th Annual 10-Minute Play Festival, in White Bear Lake, MN (Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area), May 30 - June 9.

Interrupted in a questionable attempt to reclaim and restore a precious gift underhandedly taken from her daughter, Gail finds herself charmed, forgiven, and transformed by surprisingly welcome assistance from sales clerk Trey.
Enjoy the return of greenness, blossoms and bees, and hope to see you at the theatre!
