I hope to see you there!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to our reading on Thursday! We celebrated the one year anniversary of Hatchlings, the reading series through which Watchlist was presented, and the play was well-received. If you were there and have feedback about what you heard, please feel free to reach out via my contact page.

It was a truly thrilling experience to have this work I’m so proud of presented to an audience for the first time. I’m grateful to all the actors involved, as well as our director, Lizz Hudman, and to Hatchlings, The Nest, and Bluebird Brooklyn for making this developmental process possible. It’s so crucial for artists to have space to develop their work, and The Nest provides a great space for local artists to perform right in my neighborhood! Aside from my own positive artistic experience there, Bluebird is in general a great spot in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and I highly recommend supporting the bar as well as the performance space, which has free events often.

Based on feedback, my own notes, and general audience reception, I feel that the show is in a great place to be produced this year. (Hit that contact link if you’re interested in producing!) It’s deeply satisfying, after so many years of work and feeling at times mired in edits and minute details and facts and obscure East German history, to feel that the play is ready to be on its feet and is a living, breathing, beautiful being. I hope to share it more fully with more people in the future.
