SF Olympians 2018

I've been commissioned to write a short play for the 2018 SF Olympians Festival.
My subject is Quirinus, protector of the Roman state and god of lawyers.
He wields a mighty suitcase and has a secret grudge against Orpheus.
A first draft feels coherent - there's something there - looking forward to joining the ranks of the Olympians in 2018!

"DONE" plays at Piano Fight



Just finished a run of my short piece "DONE" as part of May's Pint-Size Plays at Piano Fight, San Francisco's gem of theater.

The wonderful people who made it happen were:
Sophie Nelson -- The Customer
Ayelet Firstenberg - The "Security" Consultant
LeeAnn Dowd - The Director (actually!)

The read-throughs at the Berkeley Rep back office space (and fantastic costume shop!) were a pleasure, and the performances were each different and excellent.
