BURST's First Public Reading with REACH Cabaret 2018

What a whirlwind weekend down in Cedar City! It was filled with great theater, new friends, delicious food, and pretty epic hiking. I had no idea that the Utah Shakespeare Festival was hiding such wonders; my husband and I are already talking about our next trip down!

AND, because I’m a super lucky playwright, on top of all of that, I also got to watch three actors tackle my play BURST in front of an audience for the very first time. The REACH Cabaret 2018 reading of BURST was fantastic. I was blown away by the acting talent, I got to work with Veronica Otim, Daria Redus, and Isabella Abel-Suarez, the IG Winery, where the reading took place, was a beautiful and cozy spot to watch brand new plays, and I learned a ton about the script; where it’s at right now and what it needs.

HUGE and GIANT thank you to Colleen Baum, who organized the reading and read stage directions, and to all the actors and artists involved with REACH Cabaret 2018!

Happy Monday everyone!
