About a year ago, I joined a Seattle-based playwrights' group that focuses on honing the craft of writing plays and providing a space in which artists at varying stages of their careers can really explore their process and develop their voice as a dramatist. Helmed by the passionate and endlessly dedicated Rebecca Tourino Collinsworth, that entity is know as Parley.
Coming this June, Parley is putting up a one-night workshop production of my newest full-length endeavor--a deeply personal and politically charged drama, The Wild-Hearted.
About The Play:
Four millennials host a presidential election party to watch history in the making. But when the election takes an unexpected turn, hidden tensions that bubble to the surface threaten their solidarity. Lines are crossed, friends become strangers, and the party disintegrates into chaos. Chronicling the events of one epochal night, The Wild-Hearted examines love, race, and coming of age while an entire nation teeters on the edge of the unknown.

To Me, This Play Is:
I wrote this play because we:
Are stilling growing up.
Believe in the world.
The future rests on us.
Demand our country to be better.
Don't have a clue.
Need to open our eyes.
Are coming into our own.
Want to help each other.
This is my activism. And we are the wild-hearted.
I hope to see you June 5th.
