  • HOUSE OF JOY going to Cal Shakes!

    Cal Shakes sets impressive 2019 season, featuring two of the Bard’s best

    Could not be more excited to share the news that HOUSE OF JOY will be getting its world premiere production at Cal Shakes, in August 2019.

    I wrote this play imagining a Shakespeare festival in mind – but it was a fanciful thought. I didn’t actually dream that it would come true exactly as I had imagined it.

    But HOUSE OF JOY is epic and fanciful and repurposes legends of history to talk about what I’m most excited and terrified about today. It is big and fun and dark and has loads of stage combat. It was MADE for a Shakespeare festival and I am so thrilled that I’ll get to see it come to life in the Bay Area, where I was born, in a beautiful summer outdoor amphitheater. Grateful to Eric Ting and the artistic leadership at Cal Shakes. More updates to come.
