At 86, I'm having a busy year.
My most celebrated play, Wrens, is being revived this fall. This reunites me happily with Tara Mallen and Rivendell Theatre, first producer of Wrens, sharer in the JEFF awards. The play will be remounted in Rivendell’s beautiful new theatre. Sept. 6 - Oct 13, 2012.
The play earned a JEFF award, an Illinois Arts Council Fellowship, a stay at Ragdale, and recently was well received at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
