American Shakespeare Center's New Contemporaries!

Very excited to announce that my new play Everything is Burning and so Fucking Beautiful! - which is the 6th play of my 7-play cycle about war - has been named a semi-finalist for American Shakespeare Center’s New Contemporaries award.

Everything is Burning is in conversation with Shakespeare’s Henry V and follows an Iraqi family at the start of the American-led war in 2003.

Mapping the Future: a roundtable

Earl: A Suicide at Dixon Place

Excited to share a new, very personal project this month at Dixon Place. Earl: A Suicide chronicles my grandfather's suicide and my struggle to understand what happened and what it means to me.

The very talented Diego Aguirre has been kind enough to help me bring life to my words in this one-person show. The show will be an hour long and presented as a barebones workshop production in the Lounge.
