In this comedy, two very different couples meet in an "Escape Room" game night, each needing very different types of escape. The clock is literally ticking as they attempt to solve the puzzles, decide what reality to believe, and weigh the risks of unlocking the door to the dangerous world outside. The play was a Finalist for the 2018 Reva Shiner Comedy Award; Semifinalist, 2018 Ashland New Play Festival, 2018 Bay Area Playwrights Festival, and the 2018 Garry Marshall Theatre New Works Festival.

"The Escape Thingy" is a Semifinalist for The Garry Marshall Theatre New Works Festival!

In its very first year, The Garry Marshall Theatre New Works Festival selected my new play "The Escape Thingy" as one of the Semifinalists!

In this 5-person comedy, two very different couples meet in an "Escape Room" game night, each needing very different types of escape. The clock is literally ticking as they attempt to solve the puzzles, distinguish facts from alternative facts, and weigh the risks of unlocking the door to the dangerous world outside.

This new play, written as part of the Playwrights Union New Play Challenge 2017, was a Finalist for the 2018-2019 Reva Shiner Comedy Award, and is also a Semifinalist for the 2018 Ashland New Play Festival and the 2018 Bay Area Playwrights Festival.

So thrilled that my new play "The Escape Thingy" is a Semifinalist in the prestigious Bay Area Playwrights Festival. I'm honored to be selected among over the 700 submissions for their 41st annual festival. I have also been entered into the BAPF pool of writers that are considered for the other developmental opportunities at Playwrights Foundation, including their monthly Rough Reading Series.
