Evil Eye is a chilling new audio play coming to your Audible subscriptions in early 2019. Originally commissioned by Audible as part of their inaugural audio theater project.
Usha and her daughter Pallavi talk on the phone, long-distance, almost every single day, and Usha’s dearest wish is to see Pallavi get married. But when Pallavi starts dating a man who couldn’t be more perfect, Usha can’t shake the feeling that something is off about this young man. Something sinister. Something too frightening to even be real. But who’s going to believe her?

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.
Thrilled to be in the first round of commissioned playwrights by Audible! My play is a supernatural horror story inspired by my mother and our daily
