Professor of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies
As the founding artistic director of Brown/Trinity Playwrights Repertory Theatre, I was responsible each year for the development of three new plays, providing dramaturgical assistance and directing one of the plays each summer. In addition, I provide dramaturgical support for 10 solo shows each spring. I am currently gathering material for a text on writing/performing solo.
