Today, I’m out of love with #playwriting. It’s like a bad day in a long term #relationship.

My gynecologist assured meContinue reading “Today is a good day in Endometriosis Awareness Month”

SO: from here on, all the proceeds from the online sales of my plays will go directly to putting on Allergy.

Regarding set, props, and costumes for The Ugly Princess.  Over the last few weeks, I have been picking up, transporting, or even storing in my car, the following: a green velvet Renaissance dress 6 wooden boxes, custom built by Doug Verdin for A Hate Story in 2012 “gold” tableware – goblets, cutlery and dishes one rubber chicken fake feathersContinue reading “What goes into a show?
