SHE BURIED THE PISTOL
a solo piece for the fucking author

In a deeply personal one-woman show, the writer invites the audience to join her in a ritual re-telling of her great-grandmother’s life.   SHE BURIED THE PISTOL reckons with the histories we inherit, and the tales we choose to tell.

THE SILENT WOMAN
1F, 1M, 4 F/M

Winner of the 2015 Kentucky Women’s Playwriting Prize, THE SILENT WOMAN tells the strange, true tale of a painter living with an effigy of his ex-lover in 1919 Germany.  But the doll can’t dress herself, so the painter enlists a young maid in an intricate and erotic game of pretend.

 

Playwright and judge, Carson Kreitzer said, “THE SILENT WOMAN is a deeply assured work, funny and strange and beautiful in turns. It will make a thrilling production. I look forward to hearing much more from this writer in the future!
