I am so excited to be working with Ivey Lowe, who will be producing and directing my play “Mama Won’t Stay Dead” for the 44th Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival. Ivey is a New York-based director who has directed at the Hangar Theater, Bloomington Playwrights Project, and the Williamstown Theatre Festival, to name only a few. She was a Drama League Directing Fellow and part of the Lincoln Center Directors Lab. And, lo and behold, she is also from the South, Georgia to be exact, and now lives in Brooklyn. She said she had no trouble at all relating to the two Southern women in “Mama”.
