A stage director and his lead actress investigate the life of Fauna, a deceased woman whose memory still haunts the stage. As they meet with her children and rehearse scenes from her life, they draw the portrait of a woman who challenged social norms and was eventually driven to insanity. The play is also a subtle reflection on points of view, and the links between fiction and reality.
Prior to my work in New York, I was in Cleveland for the Russo Brother's Cherry with Tom Holland, Ciara Bravo, and Michael Gandolfini at Case Western Reserve University. I also recently performed in Melody Bates' Avalon, produced by Opera House Arts and directed by Joan Jubett at a site specific location, Nervous Nellies, on Deer Isle, ME. Other selected previous projects include Jeffry Chastang's Dauphin Island, as 'Selwyn Tate,' and Matthew Lopez's The Whipping Man, as 'Simon.'
