While working on the premiere of IN THE FOREST, SHE GREW FANGS in Fall 2013, I had the opportunity to collaborate with some really fantastic actresses, not all of whom were used to the fullest extent of their talents. I was inspired to write a play that gave them some roles they could really have fun with. That kernel of an idea spiraled and sprawled to become the bloody, hardscrabble family drama THE GANTRY GIRLS COME HOME. This week I got to announce that the play was a finalist for this year’s O’Neill. The script–a two-act drama about six sisters who return to their childhood home as their mother is dying and unearth some old secrets–is available on the O’Neill Finalist page and on the New Play Exchange.
