PROJECTS

           Untold

Untold weaves music, movement, and excerpts from over one hundred interviews to explore the mental health crisis in America, where the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate 46% of the population will struggle with mental illness at some point during their lifetime. Based on interviews with social workers and therapists; individuals struggling with addiction, eating disorders, and personality disorders; veterans battling PTSD; and survivors of suicide, the production provocatively portrays these individuals’ bravery, vulnerability, and resiliency. The show was presented at the 2017 International Forum on Ethnodrama and won the Dunn-Rankin Award for New Work at the 2017 San Diego Fringe Festival.

           Play/Date

Play/Date is a voyeuristic theatrical experience set in a bar featuring short plays—all about dating—by 17 different writers, include a Tony-award winner, an acclaimed novelist, and a sex columnist. The show took “immersive theater to the next level” (Time Out) while “broadening the definition of theater” (New York Times). The production premiered in New York City in 2013 before being produced Off-Broadway in partnership with

3-Legged Dog. Imagine an adult choose-your-own-adventure crossed with your best, boozy night out—that's Play/Date.

           Second Star to the Right

Second Star to the Right is an autobiographical play for young audiences developed by two adopted sisters. Drawing from their favorite shared book—Peter Pan—the show explores themes of immigrant experience, identity, unconventional families, and teenage depression. Created specifically with young women in mind, it is a poetic exploration of survival in search of Neverland, and was developed as a “trunk show” to tour to local schools. It received a developmental workshop in partnership with Moxie Theatre.
