In 2014, my main piece of public writing was an essay on disability for The Atlantic, which led to an interview with the CBC and a Dramatists Guild panel on disability. Otherwise, I continued working with a great group of students at the New School for Drama. I also enjoyed continued small productions of Dying City; had some fun at the doomed NYT Opinion App launch party; contributed a short piece for The Dramatist; had a productive retreat with the Sundance Institute in the Hamptons; and did a fun in-depth interview with Stephen Bottoms about my work. 2015 should be a productive year; stay tuned for news.
I just returned from a wonderful week at the Sundance Institute’s Playwrights Studio at Flying Point. Graciously hosted by Joan and George Hornig, a great group of writers got to work freely in a beautiful setting. Below, the barn on the Hornig property where many of us did our work.

Roger Martin, miamiartzine: A challenging piece best watched while leaning forward, perched on the edge of the seat, mouth slightly agape and eyes squinted to catch every nuance skittering through a ninety minute message that all’s not right with a young war widow, her manly dead husband reappearing in flashbacks and her husband’s gay twin brother.
