PhD candidates Sanam and Ariel have spent the better part of the last decade exhaustively researching vanishing bee populations across the globe. Just as these close friends are about to publish a career-defining paper, Sanam stumbles upon an error, which could jeopardize their reputations, careers, and friendship.

This was a tremendous night organized by Natasha Sinha (LCT3) and Arpita Mukherjee (Hypokrit Theatre Company). Was so honored to be on this panel and meet many many beautiful South Asian theatre artists in NYC. And to get to make cool folks like Aneesh Sheth and Ayad Akhtar laugh at my grumpiness.
So so so so happy to share that I’m coming back to Chicago with a new play at Victory Gardens, premiering June 2019, directed by Chay Yew himself! (!!!!!!!) And I get to share the season with some of the best plays and playwrights in America today. I can’t believe it.
