Creative writing

I trained in theatrical storytelling as a director and dramaturg at Boston University’s theater conservatory. I spent more than a decade in New York theater working with playwrights to develop new stories and ensembles to tell them in interactive ways.

I returned to writing when the Gielgud Fellowship gave me access to the Folger Shakespeare Library. Reading Shakespeare’s sources prompted me to write Margaret I, a play which used the women of the Henry VI plays to explore attitudes towards women and power. I’ve continued to write about women in history, including historical advice column Ask a Badass
