Excited to report that Puss Collective will be in residence at Access Theater this season working on a new play with music: #FRIENDBOX!
In this unofficial sequel to How to Sell Your Gang Rape Baby* *For Parts, Ali’s decision to KonMari her apartment and have a new life delivered holds unexpected challenges for her best (only) friend Libby. This satire of consumerist culture explores the changing face of personal freedom in the new gig economy – and you can dance to it.
Had a terrific time with Gina Femia and our wonderful cast doing a staged reading of SAVINGS, Gina’s new play about the closing of a neighborhood supermarket. Many thanks to Ramapo College and New Georges for giving us the opportunity to work on this play!
Berrie Center Event

Had a terrific time with Less Than Rent Theatre at a reading of T(WO) TRAIN: to be in transiti(on) on October 16 — it was a great opportunity to hear Tanya’s rewrite and work with an amazing cast! Many thanks to LTR and Axis Theatre!
I had an amazing time this month directing monologues for Pussyfest,
the extraordinary fundraiser/happening/party performance
to support Caps Lock Theatre!
Amy E. Witting, Kurt Stridinger, Brooke Ashley Eden, and Kari Bentley-Quinn
wrote for Kelli Lynn Harrison, Kelley Rae O’Donnell, Madeline Bundy,
and Kristen Krak, respectively, and it was a delight to work with all of them.
Mariah MacCarthy, Leta Tremblay and the whole Caps Lock team are terrific.
A+, would do again!
I had a wonderful time directing a reading of SHADOW WALKERS by Shaun B. Fauntleroy at Judson Memorial Church last month! This is a beautiful play, and the cast more than did it justice.
Thank you, CK Allen, Pun Bandhu, Patricia Randell, Nik Sadhnani, and Chandra Thomas!
(And Michele O’Brien knows that reading stage directions is an art!)
