Fawntastic Fawnbook

Over the last few months, I have been really busy rehearsing for, and then performing in, an off-Broadway show called Fawnbook! The show was written by Ayun Halliday (who was also in the cast) and directed by Jean Michele Gregory and it ran for 10 sold out performances at the The Brick Theater in Brooklyn. It was so much fun and I learned a ton working with six other really experienced actors.

Fawnbook is a post-digital, pre-apocalyptic dark comedy about a small agrarian community made up of three women and three teen boys. Together they dig vegetables, spot fawns, and deal with the mounting disasters of their world. All the dialogue from the play comes from social media. "Like!"

This was us in a Brooklyn newspaper!


 And during one performance, artists were invited to sketch us. Here I am!
