Yesterday I had the pleasure of playing Ethel in Annie Golden's first read-through of her piece, "The Hard Place" at Champion Studios.
The play is set in South Philadelphia in 1918 and the characters are members of a fractured classical theatre troupe, struggling to retain their humanity and themselves as the world they knew crumbles. The war, anti-German sentiment, and the 'Spanish flu' of that year all have strong presences in the play, and I really can't wait to see how Annie develops this piece over the next few months... and it was pretty cool to be part of a female-heavy show (with the exception of the lovely Justin Choi playing Arthur!)
Seriously great way to spend a Monday! #newworksinnewyork
