About the show: In the dry landscape of central California, a family must come to grips with the care of a small child, abandoned by her own parents and now forcing her grandparents to choose her instead of their own mistakes.With a haunting score by Shellen Lubin , in the tradition of Goblin Market and Floyd Collins, this story of choosing love in the long run wraps us in the mystery of survival and healing.

NEW YORK THEATRE INTENSIVES: NYTI is a new play intensive for undergraduate actors, writers and directors. The NY Theatre Intensives:Summer Conservatory Program in association with the artists of The Ensemble Studio Theatre offers students an opportunity to create new theatre of their own in the heart of New York City’s theatre district and earn college credits.

Los Angeles Writers' Bloc

This safe haven peer writers group serves as a home for projects and writers in process. Founded by playwright Jeffrey Sweet in New York, the LA Group began in the mid 80’s, anchored by Jane Anderson, Tony Shultz and Susan. Our alums include writers from Disney to Dreamworks and Random House to rant groups. We meet weekly working on fiction, memoir, plays and screenplays. Though the group is by invitation only we are always interested in welcoming new members.
