It was a pleasure reading Christopher Wilson's play, BONEYARD, directed by the talented and wonderful Mike Donahue, for the 2018 Hunter College MFA Playwrights Thesis Festival. BONEYARD is a beautiful piece and I'm excited to have such a unique voice as Chris's out in the theater landscape. Congratulations!
I am absolutely floored to have been nominated for a 2017 Lucille Lortel Award alongside such wonderful talents and friends like Jocelyn Bioh. The ceremony will be May 7th at NYU's Skirball Center. Fingers crossed!
