when the lights go dark, i dance

This is June Bug. She puts on lipstick in the rear view window of her car as she sits outside a club with thumping bass. Dark red looks like velvet. Tastes like plastic wax.  June Bug looks at groups of people frolic into the club. Stroll in seemingly casually. And she feels an affinity with…

The Real World – Theater Edition: Britney Frazier

Had to share this interview.  Whenever I have moments of these moments of self doubt, I need to do as Brit: This is the advice I give myself: Keep the faith. Believe in you. People say sh*t, good and bad people say sh*t. Don’t let it make or break your spirit. Please yourself first and…

unedited scene from the bike play

I haven’t really felt like sharing, but then I thought, fuck it, I got nothing to lose (except for my 14 views–don’t go!).  Anyway, I was trying to think of what scene to post to round this off. There’s one where Ella is teaching Jamie how to be seductive, that one’s good. Or another that’s…

The Man Who Sold The World

I have song obsessions. This is one of them. This song relates to i stole lance armstrong’s bike in that it was the impetus for the whole play. I will share that next, but first, a really long digression…  I warned you. Of course, I felt tremendously sad to hear the news of David Bowie. A…

The Real World – Theater Edition: An Interview with Libby Emmons

We do ask permission all the time to do art. Why? Isn’t that somewhat the point of art (possibly) to not ask permission? I remember something Rob Handel told…

the bike play

There’s this play I wrote about two girls that steal Lance Armstrong’s bike while he’s doing the Tour of California. Just a crime of opportunity, you know. So they go on this road trip to get rid of it, but end up being in over their heads. They post about it online and become internet-famous….

Punk As Fuck – reading on 1/12 at the Gallery Cafe in SF

Super lucky to be selected as a guinea pig for Custom Made Theatre‘s new plays development program. Myself and Megan Cohen, another fantastic local playwright (who happens to be in the cast of my play!) were asked to share a play we’d been working on for these one-off readings at the Gallery Cafe.  The point…

It’s Been A Long Time

“…I shouldn’t have left you without a dope beat to step to…”   And here I am, back on this crazy thing and ready to give an update on all that’s happened. The biggest thing was that for the past two years, I’ve been off at Carnegie Mellon University pursuing my MFA in Dramatic Writing…
