Lately & Upcoming


Hello Friends & Collaborators!

My adaptation of Astrid Lindgren’s marvelous adventure story, Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter, got a delightfully wry premiere at Theatre Lab@FAU in (Boca Raton). The first full-length family-friendly show to be mounted at the theatre, it had all the mystery, magic, & humor – and stunning original music -- in a production appealing to audiences from 5 to 85!

In an extraordinary national collaboration between seven of the countries leading children’s theatres, I was commissioned to adapt a wildly popular children’s book into a play that premiered in seven independent productions at each theatre. Judy Moody & Stink: the Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt just completed a raucous run that started at Oregon Children’s Theatre Children’s and wrapped up at Children’s Theatre of Charlotte. Read more about this bold project.

More Judy Moody news: Playscripts will soon be publishing the play -- three additional productions are already lined up!

More good publishing news: Wild Horse, my one-woman stampede, is going to be published by Sam French.

As a fortunate recipient of the New Harmony Project’s first ever NHP Legacy Program, I’ll be spending a large swath of the spring hunkering down for a writing residency in that glorious area of Indiana, working on commissions for Geva Theatre and SCT.

My new play The Loyals -- a romantic comedy about treason, gets a reading in Seattle this summer. More on that rapidly developing situation soon!


Artistic Purpose

As a playwright one goal of mine is to create challenging roles and inspiring opportunities for actresses to strut their stuff. We know gender parity is a thing, and never is it more glaring to me than when skilled artists miss their moment, simply because there’s so little being offered for them to do. I believe my purpose is to generate stories and experiences that will live deeply in audiences and artists; I strive for and embrace that responsibility in all of my work. Read on >>
