Playwriting

I'm currently working on a performative piece inspired by my research on Christian misogyny in Shakespeare. Drawing scenes from some of his plays, this piece examines the way that these women are personified and how they fit into the male-dominated world around them. It focuses on the stereotypes that these women are forced into and how that often times controls their fates.

The Bloody Banquet

I'm excited to start working on the Waco 2024 annual Shakespeare in the Park production of The Winter's Tale!

 

I recently collaborated with a regional theatre in Texas as the adaptor and dramaturg for their 2023 Shakespeare in the Park Production of Julius Caesar.

Blending acting with academia is something that I'm particularly passionate about. Click here to view a performance edition/edited selection from an Early Modern Play. 

WHAT I'M READING

Hamnet

by Maggie O'Farrell

England, 1580: The Black Death creeps across the land, an ever-present threat, infecting the healthy, the sick, the old and the young alike. The end of days is near, but life always goes on. A young Latin tutor—penniless and bullied by a violent father—falls in love with an extraordinary, eccentric young woman. Agnes is a wild creature who walks her family’s land with a falcon on her glove and is known throughout the countryside for her unusual gifts as a healer, understanding plants and potions better than she does people. Once she settles with her husband on Henley Street in Stratford-upon-Avon, she becomes a fiercely protective mother and a steadfast, centrifugal force in the life of her young husband, whose career on the London stage is just taking off when his beloved young son succumbs to sudden fever.

ACADEMIC WRITING

For my dissertation, I wrote about Jame I's cousin, Lady Arbella Stuart and how she engaged with theatre, and how playwrights, in turn, engaged with her.
