I’m happy to announce that my play Sister Calling My Name will be receiving a NYC production at the Sheen Center from January 24 to February 16   There’s a press blurb about the production from Broadway World here and from Talkin’ Broadway here.

This is a play that I wrote several years ago that has seen over two dozen productions throughout the country and Canada and has won a number of awards, including the National Play Award sponsored by the National Repertory Theatre.

Some of the cities where it’s been produced are Orlando, Charlotte, Houston, Vancouver, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and Chicago.  Although I haven’t been able to see all of the productions, those I have seen have been very special and each theatre company has remained a part of my theatrical family ever since.  This New York production, produced by Storm Theatre and Blackfriars Repertory theatre, has a wonderful cast and will be mounted in the Sheen Center’s new intimate black box theatre.  The show’s director Peter Dobbins has embraced the play fully and I’m excited about experiencing this new incarnation of the story. 

Of all my plays, this one has a special place in my heart.  It was inspired by my relationship with my mentally disabled older sister whom I grew up with.  I consider the play a tribute to her life and our ongoing connection to each other.

If you are within shouting distance of New York, I hope you have an opportunity to experience this production.
