Want something awesome to do in D.C. in March and April!?
Well, we’ve got THE answer for you :D.
Links to each show:
- The Future Is Female Festival – DC Show
- “The World Is Your Stage” Photo Exhibit
- Space Cadets – Sci-Fi Comedy Odessey
Yes, it’s been awhile. This may happen from time to time when in the midst of writing and editing and searching for a day job to ensure the art can go on.
So here’s a quick catch-up of what’s been happening and what to look forward to:
1) Helping recurring actor Sir Harvey Fitz with his 1st ever Photo Exibit titled “The World Is Your Stage.” It’s gonna be epic! Click here for info –> https://www.facebook.com/events/655552037978944/
2) Play in D.C. “The Future is Female Festival – Night Of New Play Readings,” https://www.facebook.com/events/1009399285859727/
3) A sci-fi sketch in a sketch-theater hybrid festival
– more deets to come
4) Other plays in the works like some new musicals 🙂 and hopefully at least one web series heading into planning stages
5) We has a successful stage reading w/light blocking of “A Puck-Up: An Unofficial Ending to a MidSummer; the play from the “Accidental Tragedy” Post …plans on what to do with the full length in the works. Will post photos soon.
6) Submissions to summer/fall play festivals — fingers crossed 🤞
Super grateful to Rabble Crew Productions for the opportunity to perform the one-act script “Sex-O-Lympics” as a part of their 2 weekends of sex-ed themed plays.
Photos of the show are below 🙂
The #52playsbywomen sounds very neat! In a nutshell: “Could you see a play by a woman a week for a year and tell everyone about it on Twitter?”
Going to try to find feasible and affordable ways to make this possible.

Oooo! Idea in the moment as this blog post is being written. Maybe we’ll do podcasts/radio dramas or filmed stage readings (possibly cold) of the scripts to help people participate! While not quite the same as a staged show, it can help busy actors participate in an easy way and make female playwright scripts accessible to more people! More brainstorming to come.
On Monday, a brilliant new international theatre parity advocacy call to action launches on social media: #52playsbywomen. This international campaign has been started by American writer Laura Annawyn Shamas.
I. Pledge to see a play by a woman (including woman-identified) playwright each week for a year. If you’d like (optional), you can announce your pledge on social media, something like:

But at the end of the day, the shows turn out awesome and they are sooo much fun to do!
There are many forms of on-the-go theater.
Venues/rehearsal spaces good for on-the-go theater include:
