I’ve had two Chicago productions:

HIRE POWER: My full-length comedy was produced by Hodar Productions for a six-week run after being chosen for the Chicago Women’s Theatre Alliance New Plays Festival the year before. It also received an Honorable Mention in the McLaren Memorial Comedy Playwriting Competition.

ALL BUT THE KITCHEN SINK: My evening of one-act comedies was produced by the Chicago Playwrights’ Center for an extended eight-week run. I received an Illinois Arts Council award for the play’s production.
