Tree at San Fransisco Playhouse

My play Tree just finished a sold-out run at the San Fransisco Playhouse. It was great to be in rehearsal with my dedicated and inspired colleagues, director Jon Tracy and actors Carl Lumbly, Cathleen Ridley, Susi Damilano and Tristan Cunningham. Through their beautiful work and talents I rediscovered the play and in fact found nuances of character and story that I hadn’t seen before. Each production of a play is so very different and this one took my heart away. I can’t even say how moving it was to be back in San Francisco after all these years and seeing so many old friends. I was humbled by the response from both audience and critics who gave it rave reviews:

“A mature, richly theatrical work … as beautiful as it is moving” (San Francisco Chronicle)

 “A profound examination of love, family [and] race” (The Huffington Post)

“… one of those rare gems …. at the heart of why you see theatre in the first place” (Stark Insider)
