New Jersey Rep Monday Night Salon Reading
I'm playing the supporting role of Ana in Paige Campbell's debut feature, Friday Afternoon.
The film is fantastically well-written, and centers around something one in three women experience in their lifetimes: abortion. I was thrilled to work with such a smart, funny, female-helmed team to bring this story to life.

Back at HERE Arts Center for the second time this year!
Strange, America. It's a funny, heartfelt, and occasionally spooky tale about being human in a world of monsters. Also a jackalope. Thanks a million to Primary Stages and the Fordham MFA Playwriting Program for the chance to get in on the ground floor with Edward. See you at HERE!
What happens when a woman begins to menstruate crude oil?
Pussy Sludge is a tender exploration of questioning authority, suspending shame through intimacy, and very bad advice.

In a time when so many of us are experiencing fear, sadness, and isolation, I am honored and empowered to be a part of a project that is helping bring us together. Join me and the rest of the SANCTUARY crew as we laugh, grieve, scream, and start the process of fighting back.
February 10 - 12 @ HERE
Pussy Sludge is one small part of SANCTUARY at HERE Arts Center.
This year, half of all proceeds will go straight to the ACLU, so never fear. You'll be helping fund the revolution no matter how much eggnog you put away.
The House on the Hill
This June 13, I had the honor of reading alongside legendary character actor Peter McRobbie in Bleeding on Broadway, a benefit for the Hemophilia Association of NY at Playwright's Horizons.
The Nightingale by Kristen Lowman, was a two-hander, directed by Nicola Murphy, alongside Peter McRobbie. Nicola is Irish and Peter is Scottish, but it's me who did the UK accent-- I played Emma, a kind-hearted British waitress.
Peter McRobbie is best known for his extensive film career, which includes Bridge of Spies, The Visit, Inherent Vice, Lincoln, and Brokeback Mountain. He has appeared in dozens of TV shows, most recently playing the role of Father Lantom in Daredevil. McRobbie has appeared on Broadway twelve times: his credits include The Crucible, The Master Builder, Saint Joan, and The Invention of Love.
After the joy of playing Helena off-Broadway last year, I couldn't be having more fun playing her counterpart, Hermia, here at ASF.
The lavish production, sponsored by the late Harper Lee (an ASF aficionado) celebrates the Festival's 30th Anniversary Season.
Who knew that NASCAR, moonshine, and theatre would make such a winning team?
This March and April, I'm kicking up some red dust in the Alabama Shakespeare Festival's world premiere of White Lightning by Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder.
I'm so excited to be spending February - May 2016 performing in two fabulous shows at ASF in Montgomery, AL, the sixth largest Shakespeare Festival in the world.
Check 'em out:
MARCH 3 - MAY 7, 2016
APRIL 8 - MAY 8, 2016
DIXIE in White Lightning by Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder
Can a young man get off the wrong track and on to the right one before the revenuers catch up with him? A new play about moonshine, racing and adventure that takes a snapshot of the 1940s South and the rough and tumble origins of NASCAR.
HERMIA in A Midsummer Night's Dream
The path to true love never runs smooth--especially when you're in a magical forest haunted by fairies and mischievous spirits. One of Shakespeare's most beloved romantic comedies, "what fools these mortals be!"
