I've been remiss in updating my website, partially because I have been so busy with my next production! My play, "Satisfaction," has gone through a rigorous development process this fall through the "Main Stage Live!" program at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Under the direction of Adam Fitzgerald, this program at AADA seeks to provide an opportunity for alumni to work with New York playwrights on the development of their plays. For me, it has been a boon to have an opportunity to work on the script up on its feet, and I'm thrilled with the results.
When I wrote this play last summer, I thought I was writing a light and bright play about women and how they look at sexual satisfaction. But working so intensively on the text this fall has revealed to me how radical it is to portray women speaking unabashedly about their desires. There are few plays that feature even one woman having an honest conversation about her own desires, much less four. I'm happy that this play is being presented at this particular moment in our history and hope that along with the laughs, perhaps this play will give some a different perspective on what some modern women care about.
Directed by Adam, the play features Siho Ellsmore, Karen, Johal, Kendall Segovia- Gallo, Ava McCoy, and Vince Ryne, all talented AADA alums. Performances are at 7pm from Thursday to Saturday and 2pm on Sunday. Please click here for reservations.
