The Persian Quarter

Poetry and politics interweave through THE PERSIAN QUARTER, which is a tale told by the 13th century Persian poet, Rumi. Rumi’s poems serve a kind of mystic guidebook , “digging a waterway” as Rumi says, through history and politics, to try to reach a another shore… another realm.

Harbur Gate

Three interconnected plays tell story of a rape which has a ripple effect on the lives of three women – soldiers in the Iraq war in 2004. The plays are intended to be performed in the following order: ORPHEUS: about two soldiers who are up for the Purple Heart; HARBUR GATE: which is set on the convoy on the night of the explosion and VETERAN IN A NEW FIELD, in which a female veteran suffering from extreme guilt and PTSD, has a kind of epiphany through the help of a blind painter.

Silent Dancer

Set in New York City in the era which invented “razzamatazz, ” the word which stands for both consummate technique… and doubletalk. It’s the first year of Prohibition, 1920, when more than alcohol is prohibited: homosexuality, interracial relationships, and independent women seeking fulfillment of their dreams. These are the same problems and issues which America continues to struggle with a hundred years later. But in SILENT DANCER, the familiar borders of expression between dialogue and dance are broken, and these conflicts and issues are re-expressed in a new, more direct and emotional way as characters dramatize dialogue not only through words, but in dance.

Mrs. Einstein

ONE STONE is a work of imagination inspired by historical and biographical facts. It is a play about an intimate relationship between two scientists – one who became internationally famous, and one who has been removed from history. It is a story about the deep emotional, intellectual and physical connection between Albert Einstein and the physicist Mileva Marić , who was his first wife. It dramatizes the uncredited role she played in Einstein’s breakthrough achievements, and raises questions about how gender affects the success or failure of talent. It is a historical play which leads us to ask if and how it is easier today for women in science, or in any field where they want to excel.
