I’m very excited that my new play FOOTPRINT, which I began to write early last year at the National Winter Playwrights Retreat and developed through Moving Arts MADlab (with more than a little help from the Playwrights Union!) will be part of The Road Theatre Company’s 9th Annual Summer Playwrights Festival!
Working on this play has been a fantastic journey; I’m so thankful to the many talents who’ve helped along the way and am having a blast with this particular group of fearless artists…

The Road on Lankershim (5018 Lankershim Bl in North Hollywood)
Anna is suddenly having difficulties navigating her life in LA—is it being without a car or being stalled by a “Denver Boot of Sorrow?” And then there’s that body following her around, in a new reality where death gets up close and virtual in ways we might not expect. FOOTPRINT is a play about loss, mystery and leaving one’s mark.
I’ve been lucky enough to have had work included in past Summer Playwrights Festivals, and they’re a blast. This year is 30+ new plays with music, food and drink each evening; it’s a benefit for the theatre, so the $15 donation (or whatever you can give!) goes where it should.
SPF9 runs July 29-August 5, and involves more than a few artists I love (and you should, too), plus this year’s line-up is over 50% women playwrights AND women directors!
