PLAYWRITING

 
 

"Oh my word! I got lost in the dreamscape of this gorgeous play. Relevant, timeless - With dialogue that darts between gut punches and poetry. A terrific tête-a-tête for two actors, with limitless creative potential for design and direction."

- Rachael Carnes, "Does a Bird Dream of Flight?"

"Grace captures the anxiety and awkwardness of two young women, friends since childhood, when one of them decides to leave town under less than ideal circumstances. The treehouse setting is poignant, once a child's place for fun and semi-independence, now a leap into the void. Grace skillfully manages the subtext here with pleasant and not so pleasant surprises to keep you cheering and guessing what's next."

- Susan Middaugh, "The Last Sunrise of August 1973"

A lovely exploration of two characters on the precipice of change: Sisters Katie and Anna's intense emotions spill out with authenticity and humor, in this rich, rewarding two-hander. Great physicality and stage business - and an arsenal of approaches for actors to throw at each other - would make this a fascinating play to work on, and a rewarding piece to see.

- Rachael Carnes, "Oh, Honey!"

"A wonderful, quick, slice of life story. Accessible to teens and adults. Relatable and honest. Please perform this play! Cast two strong and fierce girls. Saving this one."

- Pat Owen Kachikis, "Everything That Lies Above Us"

"This play perfectly captures the experience of being a teenager in the midst of a pandemic!"

- Jess Balick Goodman, "Ice Cream Friday"
