Finally, after a year's delay, I will be spending the month of May at MacDowell, working on a new play. 


My play SALIM SALIM won the Woodward International Playwriting Prize Competition! I am thrilled and honored that the play has been chosen out of more than 400 plays. It will receive a production at NH University next year.
