BURST is a Finalist for NNPN 2022 Showcase

April 25, 2022

Beyond thrilled and over-joyed to announce that Burst was named a finalist(!!!!!) for the National New Play Network‘s 2022 Showcase! This was my first year I was able to have a play considered, you need an NNPN theater to nominate your work (shout-out and huge thank you to Alicia Washington and Camille Washington at Good Company Theatre for putting Burst forward!), and I am flabbergasted to have made it so far. What is also flooring me is the other finalists! What a mighty group to be included in! I cannot wait to read and/or see these plays:

Still working hard on getting Burst out there for a world premiere production, or, my secret dream, a Rolling World Premiere with NNPN! I encourage you to give it a read! Pass it on to any theater artist you think would have an interest in it. I would appreciate it to the moon and back!

The National New Play Network's 2022 Showcase will be hosted by Phoenix Theatre Cultural Centre in Indianapolis, Indiana, on June 10 & 11. The amazing plays selected are:
