New works in progress, summer 2015

Have been working on two new full-lengths...CHARLOTTE & AMANDA, set in the 1920s-1930s about a friendship between two young women.  As it follows their adventures with romance and death, the play periodically erupts into stage combat.

And LEO FRANK is a drama set in the South of the 1930s, about a Jewish man who was tried for murdering a young female worker in the pencil factory he supervised - but the murder has never really been solved.
