Key West: Mangoes and Wrecks

I'm so pleased to have the chance to be a returning artist in residence at the lovely and gracious Studios of Key West this summer. TSKW provides access to the inside world of this fascinating island, and the cottage we're staying in offers artists and writers the perfect place to reflect and cool off, all under the shade of a graceful mango tree.

I'm here developing a new play about the Treasure Hunting industry - a staple of Key West life for hundreds of years - and I've been conducting research, interviews and gathering experiences. All this will feed into the eventual formation of a work around salvage and recovery, which I hope to develop further this fall. Stay tuned.
