Stupid Fucking Bird, Miami University 2016
Love, death, beauty, despair and one unfortunate seagull collide in this unabashedly provocative riff on Chekhov’s classic. Con is a burgeoning playwright in love with his ingénue; his mother, an aging actress, is involved with a famous novelist; the novelist, in turn, is increasingly enchanted with Con’s girlfriend; and everyone else suffers on the sidelines. Chekhov’s characters still ruminate on love, revolution and the pursuit of happiness, but this time convention is severly compromised.

This Is Our Youth, The Brink Theatre Co. 2016
The BRINK is dedicated to reimagining plays of the recent past and new works by contemporary playwrights using environmental and creative staging.
This is Our Youth chronicles 48 hours inside the lives of rich Jewish teens on the Upper Westside of New York City. “Funny, painful, and compassionate, the play is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood when many young people first go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers.”
