The first couple scenes from my play "La Bestia: Sweet Mother" will be read as part of the Scribe Night workshop.  This play has been through much development, most recently in the September 2016 @ the Dramatists Guild "Mary Rodgers Room" (NY) and then in December 2016 @ the Drama League (NY), both with DeSena Productions.  Didn't move past there, however, so we continue to read and develop!

La Bestia: Sweet Mother explores the stories of three women who challenge the roles imposed on them. The lives of a CIA agent, Middle Eastern dissident, and Honduran immigrant intertwine with life-changing consequences. This is a geo-political drama with a goal of exploring the refugee and immigration experience through the eyes of three strong female characters in a way that questions Americas foreign and domestic policy, as well as its patriarchal society.
