July 14, 2017 at the Exit Theater Cafe, SF CA.

{The monthly playmaking party I co-founded with Stuart Bousel is going strong in its 5th year.

Over 500 brand-new monologues have been written and performed at this event, and we'd love to see you in the room!

On the 2nd Saturday of the month, write with us, act with us, or watch with us. I won't be hosting this time (Will and Ann are carrying the mantle this month) but the party is on.

Short Play

OH, GOOD LORD! in SF Bay Area

October 11-27, 2018 at B8 Theatre Company, Concord CA.

{My play about the Virgin Mary discovering her pregnancy on the toilet, and discovering that she has a choice, will be revived this October.

It appears as part of a best-of compilation of shorts culled from past years of REPRO RIGHTS, an annual festival of plays in support of women's bodily autonomy and the right to reproductive freedom.

New Opera

UNTITLED RODEO OPERA in Houston

March 2021 with Houston Grand Opera's HGOco, Houston TX

{I'm writing the libretto for a commissioned chamber opera through Houston Grand Opera's HGOco program!

In my first collaboration with composer Nell Shaw Cohen, we'll be telling an original story about feminism and modern rodeo culture, informed by interviews with contemporary Texans. Yeah, that's right: it's a Feminist. Rodeo. Opera.

Small-town barrel racing champion Shayla Taylor and her sponsor, powerful businesswoman Jamie Mendoza, aim for a big win at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. When tragedy threatens Shayla's career-defining race, the women discover each other's strength in adversity.
