Monsieur La-Frey

An impressive article about the unstoppable Dane Laffrey, who is the sort of man who would receive an Obie for two different things … and then get directly on a plane to Paris.

SPACE on Ryder Farm 2017

Couldn’t be more excited for a week at SPACE this season, with the other 2017 Residents!

Flashback to the residency season (2015) in which our apartment was taken over by a gigantic nest of yellow-jackets living in the walls, and Dane & I fled to SPACE for solace

Lark Reading Series avec Anna Ziegler

Over the past month, I’ve been writing the first draft of my commission for Writer’s Theatre in Chicago. It’s an adaptation of/ strange riff on the Jacobean play The Witch of Edmonton, and I’ve been lucky to work in it at The Lark via a Project Residency, a handful of Round Tables, and the good graces of a group of actor-friends. On May 15, I get to hear a rough draft of it with an audience (and more actor-friends), as part of the culmination of the Rita Goldberg Playwrights’ Workshop. Anna Ziegler is doing this also, on the 22nd. Here we ask each other questions about our work (by which I mean, mostly about binge-watching TV).
