A mention in the NYT

Thanks so much to my dear friend Chris Hayes for his generous shout out to me in the New York Times!  Being included with that list of writers was a humbling and inspiring moment.

Everyone should buy Chris’ new book A Colony in a Nation which is coming out next week. And if you’re not watching his show on MSNBC…seriously? What are you doing?


Sheltered premieres at Alliance Theatre in 2018

Next year I will be heading down to Atlanta in the winter to work of the world premiere of my play Sheltered. I am incredibly grateful that Sheltered has won the 2018 Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, and honored to have my American premiere in the great state of Georgia! Who’d have imagined?

Find out more about Alliance’s super terrific 2017/18 season (Crossing Delancey!!) at American Theatre magazine or on their website.

More about the Kendeda award in the coming weeks!

A major disaster in Manhattan has everyone on the island looking for high ground. For Danny’s family and friends, that higher ground happens to be her one-bedroom apartment in Inwood. As the world outside  goes to pieces, Danny tries to keep the peace among the assorted characters gathered in her space. They might make it through this crisis, if they can manage to survive each other.

The Great Divide is up and running at the Finborough in London, and I was lucky enough to be there for tech week and opening. I am a bit biased, but I really think this is a beautiful production, expertly directed by Rory McGregor and gorgeously acted by a phenomenal cast.


I am so proud of this show, and the amazing work this dedicated group of artists have put in to creating this important world. If you happen to be in London, please check it out! Otherwise, I hope to be brining it to a theater near you someday soon!
