Very proud to announce that my latest play “BREAKFAST AT DADDY’S” premiered in New York on November 5th. BREAKFAST AT DADDY’S is part of a show produced by Partly Cloudy People. This production seeks to end the stigma and the silence around abortion. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the historic Margaret Sanger Center of Planned Parenthood.
“BREAKFAST AT DADDY’S” is about a girl and her father in his kitchen, waiting for it to be the time for her to go get an abortion, he supports her wholeheartedly, or so she thinks…
Alongside “BREAKFAST AT DADDY’S” there will be other plays by Catherine L. Albers, Sarah Kinsey, Lizzie Vieh and Pirronne Yousefzadeh staged the same night.
“An interview-based show inspired by the true stories of women and their partners as they navigate the choices surrounding pregnancy. We are interested in the enormous crossroads women face when deciding to raise her baby, have an abortion or give the child up for adoption. We wonder: if we create a platform to share our stories, might we take comfort in each other and feel empowered to claim our decisions without fear of judgement? The results from our personal interviews will culminate in a full theatrical production to raise awareness and funds for a women’s health organization.”
