It's my first win, after being nominated twice before (for <i>Duel of the Linguist Mages</i> and <i>When I Come To My Senses, I'm Alive!</i>). Deeply proud of this show.<br /><br /> Thu, 25 Oct 2018 14:18:29 -0700 Protesting in DC <img src='' align='right' hspace='4' vspace='4'>I was in Washington DC from Oct 2-7, 2018, protesting the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. We lost that fight, and will undoubtedly lose others, but being there and making our voices heard was critical to exposing how much of a sham the entire process was. <br /><br /> Mon, 08 Oct 2018 16:33:03 -0700 Other Things, Besides Dance, You Might Consider Doing Like No One's Watching Mon, 24 Sep 2018 09:26:24 -0700 Silhouette nominated for Outstanding New Play <img src='' align='right' hspace='4' vspace='4'>Just going to drop this here before I forget. <p /> 8/29/2018<br /><br /> Wed, 29 Aug 2018 15:52:54 -0700 Silence In Heaven <img src='' align='right' hspace='4' vspace='4'>Ricki's got a new game she wants to playtest, in which the goal is to open all seven seals of the apocalypse.

It's called <i>Silhouette</i>, and it's going to be produced as part of <a href="">Annex Theatre</a>'s 31st season in the spring of 2018. <p /> The rough elevator pitch goes something like: "Magic and technology collide on a distant world, when a long lost band of settlers is forced to confront a colonizing fleet." Also, the thing will be mostly a cappella! I think. I'm still writing it. But lots and lots and lots of voices. Plus, after my experience with <a href=""><i>Majesty</i></a>, I'm inspired to try to get some aerial-inspired movement into the show. <p /> We shall see!<br /><br /> Wed, 27 Sep 2017 10:54:45 -0700 Thought Experiments on the Question of Being Human Wed, 27 Sep 2017 10:47:34 -0700 Storm and Desire: A Prelude <img src='' align='right' hspace='4' vspace='4'>2017 update: We stopped posting this weekly webcomic a while back, but I realized I still have the prelude stories online at Tumblr and wanted to archive that fact here on the blog.
