Songs About Trains has been a joy to work on over the past several months, and we're thrilled to have an opportunity to share the latest iteration in the Rough Draft Festival at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center. We've been gathering songs in different languages, exploring instrumentation and digging into the little-known details about the lives of workers from all over the world, spanning several transformative decades from the 1860's to early 1900's. We can't wait to share with you these incredible stories of perseverance and adventure.

Hope to see you there!

Playwriting Class at Irish Arts Center!

Playwriting: Inspirations from Contemporary & 20th Century Playwrights

Tuesdays 6:30pm – 8:30pm          

8 weekly sessions beginning Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

I am returning to the Irish Arts Center to teach this practical playwriting workshop exploring the essential ideas and techniques that can be utilized to bring out the drama in any story. Through writing exercises and sharing, students will walk away with a self-identified set of tools they can use hone their skills and craft dynamic, theatrical stories to share with the world. This course will also review contemporary and classical Irish playwrights (such as Enda Walsh, Marina Carr, and Samuel Beckett) to examine theatricality and the craft of dramatic writing, with the goal of writing your own plays.
