We are proud to be piloting the first ever iteration of the PNG PLAYWRIGHT IN RESIDENCY program!
This program is designed for the voices of playwrights underrepresented in our theater industry and the development of their new and
essential works. This residency provides opportunities for early-mid career playwrights to workshop and co-conspire with PNG company members on works which interrogate mythology, history and classicism with a radical and contemporary voice.
Stay tuned for updates, reading announcements, and opportunities for our next round of residencies.

Her plays have had readings and productions in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.
