  • Anniversary

    Today was an especially delightful day in rehearsal with my director Laura Kepley and dramaturg Celise Kalke. Laura is the sweetest, just look.

    Going through my emails I just realized that it’s been exactly one year since Celise called to tell me that I’d won the Kendeda Playwriting Prize. It’s been a truly amazing year since, and right now I’m in the middle of the funnest month of my life, with more to come with ‘A Nice Indian Boy’ (directed by Snehal Desai) very soon. I’m so grateful to have these two months, with two productions of plays that mean so much to me, and getting to work with such talented and kind people. I’ve always been happiest when I get to do theatre, and so this has been one long extended period of joy. That’s all.

  • Something amazing is happening in rehearsal.

    Day 4 of rehearsal for ‘In Love And Warcraft’ at the Alliance Theatre, and each day just gets more and more exciting.

    Tomorrow we will spend an entire rehearsal day learning how to play World of Warcraft.

    More soon.

  • Hometown girl makes newspaper

    So my New Year’s Resolution (haha, haha, ha) is to blog once a week every week for the entire year. I’ll have to have at least 52 posts by the end of 2014. I need to start recording all the good things in my life! Because good things seem to happen to me every week.

    Like this one, which starts the New Year off on an amazing note.

    The Hindu MetroPlus has profiled me. I had an interview with Anusha Parthasarathy on Monday, and now it’s online! I’m in my hometown newspaper! The freaking Hindu!

    Talking with my hands

    Big deal.

    And I like the picture too.

    This is awesome. This is just really awesome.

    I’ll get to the 2013 update and round-up soon, I swear. (haha, haha, ha.)
