A pandemic isn't going to keep the theatre down! Happy to share my first production with Dark Horse since becoming their Playwright in Residence: Spirit Seekers. A comedy written especially for Zoom (since we all live on Zoom now), Spirit Seekers follows an amateur group of ghost hunters as they camp out in the haunted and infamous Hunterville House, only to end up encountering more than they bargained for.

I am so excited to share that I have just been named the resident playwright with Dark Horse Theatre Company in Virginia! Dark Horse was the theatre that produced the regional premiere of The Value of Moscow back in 2018, and I couldn't be happier to collaborate with them once more!
Due to everything that's happening in the world right now, most theatre has been trying to figure out how to transition to an online forum, and I'm excited to say that I will be penning several plays for Dark Horse that will be written specifically for this format! (No plays about plagues, I promise.) Check back for updates -- should be fun!
