My play for Young Audiences, Cuentos de Josefina (Josephine's Tales) is published by YouthPLAYS. It's based on Mexican folkloric tales and family stories. The play holds a special place in my heart, since it's inspired by my paternal Grandmother. Click on the link below to learn more.
In fall 2020 I started as chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance at The University of Redlands in Southern California. It's great to be back west, closer to family, friends and fellow California theatre artists. In 2023 We created the School of Performing Arts and presented a sell out run of Sweeney Todd. Next up at
U of R, I'll be directing A Doll's House Part 2 (fall 2023).
After the mass shooting at the Walmart in El Paso, Texas in August 2019, I went to the border to interview folks about the community response to the incident. Those interviews inspired my new play, 23 Acts of Kindness. I was subsequently offered a Djerassi artist's residency in Northern California where I began transcribing the interviews and crafting the play. I was fortunate to work with a great group of artists at Company of Angels in Los Angeles to develop the work. The play was a finalist in the 2021 Miranda Family Voces Latinx National Playwriting Competition. Stay tuned for upcoming readings of the play.
