"Imogen Says Nothing" at Yale Repertory Theatre -January 2017
IMOGEN SAYS NOTHING The Annotated Life of Imogen of Messina, last sighted in the First Folio of William Shakespeare's "Much Adoe About Nothing" Commissioned by Yale Repertory Theatre.
A revisionist comedy in verse and prose featuring Imogen, a character who only appears in the first folio of William Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing', speaks no lines, and is probably a typo. A feminist hijacking of Shakespeare that investigates the voices that have been absented from our canon, and the consequences of cutting them.
"a fierce feminist fable" -Hartford Courant
"The Chronicles of Kalki" at Mixed Blood Theatre -October 2013
THE DISPLACED HINDU GODS TRILOGY
This trilogy of plays is loosely based on the trinity of Hindu Deities- Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva- displaced into contemporary immigrants in the West. Each play can stand alone, but they co-exist in a common universe where displacement, identity, post-colonialism, puberty, are explored through the lenses of creation, survival, and destruction.
"Brahman/i" goes for the funny bone and "Kalki" for the adrenalin glands, "Shiv" is a play aimed straight at the heart." -Rob Hubbard, St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Shiv" at Curve Theatre, Leicester, UK -January 2014
This hilarious stand-up comedy routine/play takes on history, mythology, gender roles, and high school through the inimitable comic lens of Brahman/i, a boy/girl tethered by neither gender nor culture, and wildly curious and inventive in his/her examination of both.
This comic-book infused girl-gang thriller chronicles the adventures of Kalki, a young girl who may or may not be the final avatar of Vishnu, come to rid the world of demons and evil, taking on the universal question of how exactly we survive high school.
"Agnes Under the Big Top, a tall tale" at Long Wharf Theatre -March 2011
AGNES UNDER THE BIG TOP, a tall tale
Explores the intersecting lives of immigrants in a US city in a magical tale of hope and disappointment, identity and reinvention, narrated by an itinerant subway busker. "...this lovely, brooding play bodes well for the future of the theater." -Sylviane Gold, NY Times
A four part love story in Sanskrit, ASL and English in which love transcends sexual orientation, physical attraction, and social structure, and rests instead on the ways in which we communicate and how communication bonds or breaks us. The play is structured around 4 Sanskrit love poems.
"a fascinating brew of emotion, wit and intellect" -Star Tribune
