Through the National New Play Network, I will be working as the Producer in Residence for the Orlando Shakespeare Theater in Partnership with UCF. As producer, I will be working on coordinating their developmental wing's Playfest in October and the NNPN showcase of new plays in December. I am very excited to be returning to Orlando and to be shaping new scripts for audiences across the country.
Since April, I have been privileged to work as the assistant director to Aaron Posner on his production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead at the Folger Theatre. I have enjoyed this extremely talented group of actors portraying these gentlemen, courtly characters, players (and pirates!), as well as the top notch design team. Posner created a playful yet poignant "Hamlet attic" for the two main characters to explore, and I have learned much from watching him craft their musings on death. It was challenging yet satisfying to work on a Stoppard text, and to do it at an institution like the Folger was truly inspiring. If you are in Washington DC this June, come check it out. I promise your thirst for smart humor about mortality and the search for purpose will be quenched!
