Thrilled that I can finally announce that I'm now an Affiliate Artist at Portland Stage!
And my first project there is...
So I've been working on this two-woman play for like 85 years. No, okay more like 2 years. Shelley Butler Hyler and Megan Smith McGuane are two directors who have helped me grow Things That Are Round through various workshops at places like the Lark and Echo Theatre, and now Todd Brian Backus at Portland Stage has taken this play under his wing and is directing a public reading of it Monday, September 18 at 7:30pm as part of their Studio Series. It's a suggested donation at the door, but if you want to make sure you have a seat, you can reserve a ticket here.
Here's the blurb:
Tetherly, a dentist specializing in existential terror, and Nina, an opera singer who just might be the worst babysitter ever, square off in a strange ballet of truth or dare. But is this a game anyone can even win? "Thelma and Louise" meets "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" On steroids. 90 minutes.
Come see it and stay for the talkback!
