DRIFT explores the ways in which the members of a family are pushed apart over the course of a decade, juxtaposing their gradual alienation with the process of continental drift that has shaped our earth. It was initially developed at the HBMG Foundation National Winter Playwrights’ Retreat in 2016, and was workshopped at Paper Wing Theatre Company’s 2017 Summer Play Reading Festival. DRIFT was a finalist for both Relative Theatrics’ 2019 Playwrights Voiced Series and the Garry Marshall Theatre’s 2019 New Works Festival.

 

THE OCEAN DEEP asks whether it is more important to be a good person or a good friend? And also, there are sea creatures. It was initially developed with The Vagrancy with their 2016-2017 writers’ group, and then selected for their intensive workshop process, Playdate, in 2018. It was a semi-finalist for the 2018 O’Neill National Playwrights Conference and an alternate for the 2019 New Comedies Festival at B Street Theatre.
