Monologue AMARILIS at "Claiming the Space," Newburyport, Massachusetts in March 2015

In celebration of Women's History Month, "Claiming the Space" takes place March 13th-15th and 20th-22nd at the Actors Studio of Newburyport, Massachusetts.

My monologue AMARILIS, included in the series, is about an elderly Dominican woman remembering her Haitian husband's murder during the Parsley Massacre of the 1930s.

BROTHERLY LOVE to be read at DC Black Theatre Festival in June, 2015

My short drama BROTHERLY LOVE has been chosen for the DC Black Theatre Festival's New Words Reading Series in June 2015 in Washington, D.C. (This is a big festival, which they expect more than 25,000 people to attend.)

The play is based on the Harvard professor Gates and Sargeant Crowley racism debacle in Cambridge, Massachusetts in July 2009, where a Harvard professor was arrested for trying to enter his own home. BROTHERLY LOVE is about this African-American man and his wife, and a white brother and sister, coming to terms with their relationships and current events taking place in Massachusetts.
