FLIGHT PATTERNS | a new play
FLIGHT PATTERNS explores the challenges of navigating Womanhood in a patriarchal society. This multi-generational drama follows the journey of a young woman as she pieces together her grandmother’s story in order to make sense of her own. As she mines through a collection of letters, she becomes immersed in her grandmother’s experiences on the eve of World War II, when everything changed. This is a play about the consequences of choice-making when the choices are few. It is about how those choices are inherited from one generation to the next, and redefined by historical phenomena. Above all things, however, it is a love letter to women everywhere and of every kind.
The first two acts of FLIGHT PATTERNS was presented as a reading at the Gallatin Arts Festival in April, 2017. It was subsequently awarded the Dean's Award for Graduating Seniors from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study.
A public reading of the play was recently performed at Access Theater in November, 2017.
The final draft is currently in progress, with a full production to come.
And the Beat Goes On ...
Want to stay up to date on my progress? I do all of my own dramaturgy. Join me in the fun as I explore the the women's workforce and female air traffic controllers during World War II for my new play FLIGHT PATTERNS. I'll be including updates on the status of the play as well as relevant discoveries from my research.
