Model Killer – 2016, Waterford, CT (private reading)

Model Killer

On June 17th, 2016, I presented a private reading of excerpts from Model Killer at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut.

Model Killer:

Tiny Crimes + Tiny Coverups 

In Model Killer a disgruntled dollhouse-maker-turned-investigator builds dioramas of unsolved murders, only to be discovered that she is in fact a serial killer. The reading occured at the culmination of the 2016 National Puppetry Conference, where I was mentored by Martin Kettling as part of the writing strand.


Also part of the reading were the other participants from the writing strand led by Martin Kettling.

My time at the National Puppetry Conference was made possible through funding from the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.

The internationally-acclaimed Eugene O’Neill Theater Center is dedicated to encouraging and furthering the creative impulse which is at the heart of all theatrical expression – and the puppet arts are no exception. The mission of the National Puppetry Conference is to be a catalyst for the professional puppet artist’s growth and development through both the exploration of performance styles and skills, and the production of new works-in-progress for puppet theatre.

The conference focuses on empowering puppet artists to create through the visual imagery and kinetic form of the puppet and enhancing their work through a collaborative dramaturgical process. The goal of the Conference is to encourage and create the highest quality of puppet art.
