Sometimes, you have just the perfect combination of people who come together to make something truly, truly awesome.
I was honored to receive a workshop production of my play GRADUATION DAY, presented by the Middle Voice Theater Company in association with Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and the Dorothy Strelsin Foundation. The five performances were featured four incredible actors: Lauren Annunziata, Sarah E. Cote, Kathleen Littlefield, and Alec Silberblatt. Directed by Jenna Worsham and produced by the singularly talented Victor Cervantes, Ren Santiago, and Jaime Jaget – man this production was such a gift. Stage Manager Kyle Cherry is the definition of Renaissance Man. Not to mention the all-star designers who taught me the meaning of cool, Beth Lake on sound, Jesse Sheldon on lights, and Sean B. Leo on projections – and Production Manager Maxime Briere, bringing it all together.
I’ve heard the adage before, and I’m here to tell you that it’s true: playwrights learn from seeing their plays up and on their feet. Wow. Too much to be thankful for.
So with that in mind, here’s a tiny, tiny photo of the poster.
