Next Appearance:

The new year began with a great project: I am working on Lauren Wimmer's new play, "untitled STRONG WOMAN play." The play dissects how a woman's story of abuse and survival is processed by the media - making her harrowing story a hot commodity, and even incorporated into a song by a pop star. Willa, the victim, is forced into the spotlight, and she has to decide how her traumatic story can inspire others during her 15 minutes of fame.
