Cherry Picking: New Plays Festival (NYC)

"Cherry Picking is an annual opportunity for writers, both established and burgeoning, to create new material for performance in one night of staged reading." Cherry Picking is one of my favorite events every year and I'm excited that a few short pieces I wrote will be part of this year's festival. I'll be there on Tuesday, August 29, but you should go to both nights if you can! It's so much fun. Buy tickets here

PROSPECT HEIGHTS. I have performed in clubs, theaters, and on TV, but now I'm tackling the most comfortable venue yet... other people's living rooms. So far, I've got shows lined up at several different strangers' birthday parties, for a group of teenagers, and in an apartment that's mainly used to shoot "boudoir photography." For the most part, the audience at these shows will be my host's friends and family, but there are going to be a limited number of spots at each show for others to join us.
