Directing A New Show

I will be directing The Karens, a New Comedy by Peter Gray, for The Muse Collective.


It will stream Summer 2021.

In high school, they were The Heathers: powerful mean girls extraordinaire. Now, they’re The Karens: privileged, bored, shrilly taking out their superficial anxieties on anybody who gets close to them. Disgusted by the type they’ve become, three moms join together to reconnect with their inner high school selves. To be Mean Girls with a Cause: holding the privileged White Women of America to task.

Past News

Directing | Salem: Post-Mortem by Peter Gray

I will be directing a virtual presentation of Salem: Post-Mortem by Peter Gray.

In Salem: Post Mortem the witches of Salem awaken once more--this time in the afterlife-- to seek resolution of their unfinished stories and confront the fear which left their town in tatters. When the veneer of Puritan decorum falls away, old voices scramble to regain their status and new voices awaken power they never touched on earth.

It's free to watch and will be raising money for the Audre Lorde Project.
