My play "Duck" is finally coming to full production, under Director Clare Schaffer, and Assistant Director Nerissa Hart, for 12 shows in downtown Silver Spring, MD.

The play is an absurdist/comedic journey into the psyche of a CIA officer, whose professional rise has led to a internal unraveling. Duck was initially created from four 10-minute plays written for the “30 plays in 30 days” project (August 2013). It was developed with Director Brad Raimondo and then had a staged reading at the 14th Street Y Theater, NY (December 2013); Spooky Action Theatre, DC, directed by Kristy Simmons (September 2014): Wide Eyed Productions “WINKS” Series (May 2015), directed by Suzanne Karpinski at the Drama League (NY) and then read for Secret Theatre’s (NY) New Voices Project, September 2015. It had its most recent staged reading as part of the International Human Rights Art Festival, at Dixon Place, NY (Katrin Hilbe, Director), March 2017. The play was re-worked for each reading, leading to its current state.
