Upcoming: Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. At Second Thought Theatre
Dallas, Texas. August 2018.
This summer, Laura is assisting director Christie Vela on Second Thought's regional premiere of Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. Alice Birch's form-bending, rule-breaking, patriarchy-destroying script is an exciting challenge for Laura as a dramaturg, an assistant director, and a female artist.
Fourth Friday Art Party at the Drama League
New York, New York. March 2018.
Laura was selected as one of eleven resident directors to participate in the Drama League's inaugural Art+Party series. On the fourth Friday of March 2018, Laura worked with a team of actors, as well as with visual artist Jack Ball and musician Whitney White, to devise a piece to spark a conversation across mediums. The resulting work, Hatori's Nighttime Movers, was an original, interactive exploration of the power we have to construct and deconstruct our identities.

Hillary and Clinton at Second Thought Theatre
Dallas, Texas. January 2018.
Set in a universe slightly different from our own, in the far-away land of New Hampshire in the long-ago time of January 2008, a woman named Hillary is running to become President of the United States. But between falling poll numbers, a superstar primary opponent, and a husband who could be her greatest ally or her greatest liability, Hillary must confront the possibility that she will not win - at least, not in this universe. Listed by D Magazine as one of the "Five Plays Not to Miss This Year," Laura's production of Hillary and Clinton took an uncompromising look at political titans and the fates even they cannot control.

Hinterkaifeck at the Art Is Cool Salon #1
Brooklyn, New York. September 2017.
In 1922, the Gruber family was found brutally murdered in their home, a small German farmstead miles from the nearest town. Their killer, who remains unknown, continued to live in the house, feed the animals, cook in the kitchen, and tend the fireplace for days after the slaughter. These continued signs of life in a home where everyone has died inspired Hinterkaifeck, a surreal, elegiac meditation on depression, trauma, and loneliness written by Dante Flores. This haunting new play takes an unexpectedly poetic look at one of the most gruesome and bizarre unsolved mysteries of the twentieth century. A portion of this script, directed & designed by Laura and performed by Liz Ramos, was presented at the Art is Cool Salon last fall.
