New Project Coming This Spring

This winter I was commissioned to write a short play as part of a site-specific, immersive work called Hall Pass, created by Blake McCarty, who conceived the successful production Play/Date. Like Play/Date, it will be performed as an immersive experience, where the audience moves about the space and engages with the site and the performances as a "choose-your-own-adventure" experience-- but rather than a bar, the site will be a high school, and the pieces will be performed by teenagers. It's my first play written for teen actors, which was a fun challenge. It will be performed in NYC in April, followed by productions in Southern California later in the year. As Blake describes, "The project creates a tremendous opportunity for teachers and students to explore immersive, non-traditional theater while potentially adding a number of short plays to the canon of theatrical works for high school students featuring age-appropriate characters." I'm delighted to be a part of it.
