I wrote this play! Hannah Chodos beautifully directed it! Thank you to Caitlin Hart and The Vagrancy for having me in residency over the past 9 months.
I am thrilled to be joining Wood Boy Dog Fish again for its second production in LA! This is a macabre adaptation of the Pinocchio tale, written by Chelsea Sutton and directed by Sean Cawelti. I play Wick, a spunky, naughty orphan that befriends our hero.
Wood Boy Dog Fish: previews May 12-16, runs May 18-June 24
The Garry Marshall Theatre, 4252 W Riverside Dr, Burbank 91505

I was invited to share a selection from my current work-in-progress at a conference held by UCI's Medical Humanities Initiative. The 626 Project, which I've been developing with The Vagrancy over the past year, is a play about a first generation Lao immigrant faced with a brutal decision when she has to come to terms with her son's mental illness.

I have just returned from a week-long residency with The Golden Dome School in Joshua Tree. It was beyond incredible, and I cannot wait to share what I've learned. Thank you for having me, Golden Dome!
I'm in a reading of a new play written by the supremely dope Chelsea Sutton. https://skylighttheatrecompany.com/on-stage/lab-works-2018.html
Kaidan is running until November 19th! Here are some more nice things critics are saying:
"Just returned home from an encounter with kitsune - which is to say, we've had the opportunity to enjoy what is probably the best post-Halloween scare show available in Los Angeles at the moment, Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin. The immersive theatrical production - imagine Delusion inspired by traditional Japanese ghost stories instead of Hollywood horror movies - recently had its run extended through November 19, but shows are selling out! Considering what you get for the money, they're a bargain."
“DELIGHTFUL… beautiful story and imagery… fantastic from top to bottom… A wonderful story, great acting, and amazing set design definitely make this worth your time.” — Jeff Heimbuch, Horror Buzz
“AN ADVENTURE… intriguing awesome splendor. Keep your eyes peeled! You will never know what’s coming up behind, in front or sideways of you” — Tracey Paleo, Gia On the Move
I am honored and elated to be performing in the newly formed group idiot from the Wet The Hippo collective DISCOUNTS AND SKILLS.
