I’ve got a new three-woman play—called SAFETY NET—about the opioid crisis in Alabama. It’s intimate and intense. And, as always for my stuff, funny. It takes on addiction, first responders, mothers and daughters, cooking as therapy, and the ways of strong women in the Deep South.
I’ve written myself into this one and will be working with fellow actor/collaborator, Carolyn Cook, and director, Karen Robinson, on development in a 16-month residency at the Alliance Theatre.
From the Alliance:
The ALLIANCE THEATRE is pleased to announce the three artistic projects chosen for development during its 5th Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab. Each project will receive $10,000 to use toward further exploration and development, as well as access to the Alliance’s artistic, educational, and production staffs, and rehearsal spaces. The lab productions will be presented in free performances in 2019. It is the goal of the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab to celebrate the breadth and vision of Atlanta-based artists, to encourage collaboration among Atlanta’s artistic community, and to seed projects that will be produced here in Atlanta.
