Midtown meets Key West this month in a reading of my new play THE MORE BEYOND with one of NYC's hottest theatre clans. The Drawing Board tackles meaty, challenging work, in an informal, collaborative setting, and I'm honored to be part of their schedule. Plus they have a roster deep enough to produce this reading - 34 characters! - without (almost any) double casting.
THE MORE BEYOND follows a Spanish treasure galleon in 1622 that sinks off the coast of Florida, and a modern-day treasure hunter from Key West as he tries to piece his life back together and find lost glory.

My new play YOUNG NEGRESS STEPPING OUT OF THE RIVER AT DAWN was selected for a main stage reading at the 2013 Great Plains Theatre Conference this coming summer in Omaha. I'm humbled and honored to be selected for this event. Playwrights being featured this year include Erik Ehn who graciously advised me in the early stages of this project, and also Kate Snodgrass who encouraged and challenged me during the Summer Playwrights' Intensive at the Kennedy Center last year. It's gonna be a great week!
