Thrilled to announce that my short play READING BABAR IN 2070 is in this year’s Best of PlayGround 19 festival running May 7th-24th at Thick House! I wrote READING BABAR IN 2070 last October for PlayGround’s first collaboration with Sustainable World Coalition! It was presented at Berkeley Rep as well as Stanford for the Planet Earth New Play Festival.
I can also tell you that Rebecca Ennals will be my director! I got to work with her just last weekend for SWANDay in Berkeley, and I’m thrilled to get to work together again. AND, Rebecca will be directing Tracy Held Potter’s play for Loud & Unladylike this summer!
Want to know more about the festival? I knew you did, because it’s not just the 10 minute play fest this year, this year also includes TWO world premiere full-length plays AND readings of commissioned work!
