Dear friends, I am delighted to announce the official facebook and website launch of a brand new company, Murmuration Theater.
I founded this company with the brilliant Nell Bang-Jensen, Brian Ratcliffe, and Isa St. Clair - a trio of fabulously talented actors from Philadelphia. I am so, so, so very excited about this collaboration.
This fall, we're thrilled to bring you Makeshift, a play I wrote specifically for those three incredible artists, which I think you will absolutely love. We'll be performing at Plays and Players in the first week of November, and have secured the awesome director Craig Getting, with set and costume design by Laila Swanson. So far, it's a freaking kick ass design team! We're working on getting even more brilliant heads in the room, and I'll let you know as soon as they're secured.
In the meantime, please check out our facebook page and swanky website!
love love love
so psyched to have this site (sight?) to share the latest about my theatrical life with the world!
my strategy for graduating from grad school (which i recently-good jesus-did) was to jump in to as many different projects as I could, so as to distract myself from the looming intensity of "possibility" (um...endless terror) that we all face when leaving the comforting bosom of an educational institution.
so much is cooking, and i can't wait to share it with you all!
for a quick taste:
--I just finished a fabulous week workshopping a new piece at New York Theatre Workshop with the wonderful director Erin Mee. I won't say too much now, but it's an incredible, immersive, interactive play where audience will be able to come partake in the weird, delicious experience of a "cubist party". look for more info soon, and performances in 2014!
--I am working with a brand-new theater company, mumuration theater, to develop a play I wrote for some incredible collaborators (and dear friends) in Philadelphia. It will feature the fabulous Nell Bang-Jensen, Isa St. Clair, and Brian Ratcliffe. The title is still bouncing around, so i can't "name it" here yet, but we're aiming for a run in November 2013.
