BLACK WOMAN WISDOM SUMMIT

I felt so honored this past weekend to be included as a panelist in the Black Woman WIsdom Summit with some of the flyest playwrights in the country. These women are brilliant, articulate, and take no prisoners when it comes to speaking their minds. Here is an article from the Seattle Weekly on the event.

THEATRE BATTERY SUMMER WORKSHOP

#

My play, Don't Call it a Riot!, has been twice blessed in this month of June. First I learned that it was awarded an individual artist award from 4Culture to assist in funding a 2017 production, and then on the heels of that great news, it was also chosen as one of three plays to receive a workshop production this summer in Theatre Battery's Battery Powered series. Awesomeness, awesomeness, awesomeness!! Here's the press release:

We're pleased to announce our selections for this season's BATTERY POWERED series! There were a number of excellent submissions this year, and somehow we managed to narrow it down to these 3 plays that will be workshopped and presented as staged readings. Stay tuned for performance info, and we'll see you there!

ENTER STARLIGHTER by Jessica Andrewartha (left): Jo is a college freshman who stayed close to home. This weekend she’s seeing her high school brother Josh, his best friend Sophie, and Jo’s best friend Kira, who went far away to an Ivy, all for the first time since starting college at the most awesome and explosive event of the year – Comicon. Four teens, four costumes, two hotel rooms, two crushes, a whole lot of hero worship and a web comic. What could go wrong?

DON'T CALL IT A RIOT! by Amontaine Aurore (right): Three members of Seattle’s Black Panther Party in the 1960s fight for liberation and dream of creating a better world. But as forces conspire to destroy the movement, and as their paths veer in wildly different directions, each will come to pay the price for a dream deferred.

A QUALITY EDUCATION by Seayoung Yim (center): In an elite private school, students and staff of contrasting backgrounds must each navigate their places of power... and the starting line is not the same for everyone.

EAT CAKE

I am excited to be playing the role of Petra in Annex Theater's production of Eat Cake, written by Seth Tankus, directed by Catherine Blake Smith. Opening soon! Tuesdays and Wednesdays, April 26th - May 11th. This show is hella fun! Come join the party and Eat Cake!

The World Premiere of Love Letters Beyond the Veil was a rousing success! My heartfelt thanks to the artists who collaborated on this show and gave so generously of their time, energy and passion, and to the Orcas Center for giving me the opportunity to bring this story to the stage.

Review by Norm Stamper, Love Letters Beyond the Veil

LOVE LETTERS BEYOND THE VEIL

My new solo performance, Love Letters Beyond the Veil, will have its world premiere for one night only, Saturday, June 13th, at the Orcas Center on Orcas Island, Washington. I am so excited about this show. I have put together the Dream Team for this project. It is directed by the innovative and meticulous Tikka Sears, whom I've had the pleasure of working with on three previous solo plays. Set backdrop designs are by the ingenious Celeste Cooning, who will do some magical paper cuts, but also has a few surprises in store. Costume design by the wildly creative Carolyn Hall, who is putting her trash fashion skills to great use in this show. Choreography is by the passionate and gifted Christy Fisher. Lighting design by Robert Hall, who I trust implicitly to make it all sing. To learn more and to purchase tickets: Love Letters Beyond the Veil
