Fun at the 2017 Samuel French OOB Short Play Festival!

Thanks to all my NYC friends who came to support my short play, "The Presentation" at this year's Samuel French OOB Fest! I was thrilled my play was selected for the top 12 short plays selected for a second performance on Saturday. 

Big cheers to my amazing actress, Julia Hochner, who did a fantastic job. And gratitude to the wonderful hard-working staff at Samuel French, who made the festival such a great celebration of new theater and storytelling. I left inspired!

The 2017 Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Festival -- finalist!

NYC, I'm coming back! My short play "The Presentation" was selected as one of the top 30 finalists in the 2017 Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Festival, August 8 - 12. It will be performed at Classic Stage Company Theatre in New York City.

For the past 42 years, the Festival has given emerging playwrights the opportunity to have their work produced with the support of such theatres as The Public Theater, The Royal Court, Ensemble Studio Theatre,  The Flea Theatre, The Living Theatre, and Naked Angels, and with the backing of prestigious university playwriting programs such as The New School for Drama, Columbia University, University of Iowa, and Tisch School of the Arts’ Dramatic Writing Program.

This year, over 1,000 plays and musicals were submitted. It's SUCH an honor to be selected as one of the final 30!
