Greetings from chilly Cleveland! I’m happy to report that I am currently in rehearsals for the World Premier of a new play called “Tiny Houses” written by Chelsea Marcantel. This delightful rom-com tells the story of a couple who moves from New York to Oregon to build and tiny house and live off the grid in hopes of finding a better life and themselves. Whether they succeed and whether success looks like what they think are two primary questions of the play.
I play “Jevne,” an ASMR artist who once dated the leading man and has remained in Oregon. I love playing this role, primarily because Jevne is so different from myself and also because I have a soft spot in my heart for kooky characters. I’m joined on stage by a wonderful cast which includes Kate Eastman, Peter Hargrave, Michael Doherty, and James Holloway. Over the course of 90 minutes, we build a tiny house on stage which is not a bad trick for 5 actors who had no prior construction experience!
The play is a co-production between Cleveland Play House and Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. CPH’s Artistic Director, Laura Kepley, directs this ensemble piece. For tickets to the first half of the run, please go to the CPH website.
It’s been a joy to create another role in a delightful new comedy!
