Wow, last year was a very eventful year for me and my work. And fun! CRAZY BETTY was named a 2019 O’Neill Playwrights Conference Finalist, selected as one of 67 plays from more than 1400 submissions. And it is such an honor to now be included in the O’Neill family. CRAZY BETTY was also a semi-finalist in the Bay Area Playwrights Festival.
Got to spend a couple of weeks in August in NYC preparing for the Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival and finally the presentation of my play “Mama Won’t Stay Dead” in the OOB Festival. What a great group of playwrights, 30 all together, and quite the party– during the kick-off gala at Samuel French offices, surrounded by many of the plays they have published over the years, we got to hear the wonderful playwright Lauren Yee talk about her career and writing.
And now, it’s 2020. I am now one of the resident playwrights at The Writers Room in Sacramento and am excited about the great work going on there: plans for a fall production of CRAZY BETTY and a spring reading of my new play Speak Ill of the Dead. I also plan to be part of an evening of short plays that will be presented over the next couple of months.
So glad to be writing and having my work acknowledged and produced. Stay tuned: More things in the works!
