I'm pleased to announce a staged reading for my play ESSPY will be part of the Queens College - Kupferberg Center for the Arts "First Acts: Plays in Development Series" at 7:00pm on Thursday, March 26th, 2015 at Colden Auditorium in Flushing, Queens. The reading will be directed by Leviathan Lab Artistic Director Flordelino Lagundino, with Donatella Gallela, Dramaturg, Leviathan Lab. The play will be read by Obie-Award winner Ching Valdes-Aran, Jolly Abraham, and Chester Poon, with stage directions by ESSPY Associate Producer Ariel Estrada.
The reading is supported through a grant from the Queens College-Kupferberg Center for the Arts First Acts: Plays in Development Program. This is the first time that I have won a grant for my work, and I am so honored to be presenting this play that takes place at a medical school in an academic setting.
