2019 is about Dramaturgy

This year, I intentionally decided to put a pause on big playwriting projects in order to recharge and work on other aspects of theater. Like dramaturgy!  I am working on two projects:

Black Sheep by Heidi Park

It has been a pleasure serving as a dramaturg for my friend Heidi’s play!

Synopsis: Ever since you were a child, have you felt like you were the black sheep of the family? Heidi has. As the only person of color in her white adoptive family, we follow Heidi through her unlikely success at the Minnesota State Fair and her heartbreaking journey in Korea to recover her roots.
