On June 15th, 2013 I performed an excerpt from Object of Her Affection at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut.

In Ashes to Ashes, Rust to Rust, a woman who develops intimate relationships with inanimate objects discovers that the bridge she has come to love has been cheating on her.

Performances at the O’Neill were in conjunction with the National Puppetry Conference. My time at the 2013 O’Neill was made possible by the Alumni Travel Scholarship, Terry Fator Scholarship.

The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center is the country’s preeminent organization dedicated to the development of new works and new voices for the stage. Located in Waterford, Connecticut, it has launched some of the most important voices and works in American theater and has revolutionized the way new work is developed. The Center is home to The National Puppetry Conference, which encourages puppet artists to create through the visual and kinetic form of the puppet, to push beyond boundaries, and develop new works.
