On April 20th, 2017, American Theatre, announced the 2017 season at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, including my artist-in-residence for Model Killer.

Model Killer: Giant Crimes + Tiny Cover-Ups is a morbid comedy centered on a disgruntled dollhouse maker turned investigator. Vivian Nutt builds dioramas of unsolved murders, only for it to be revealed that she is in fact, a serial killer.

In Model Killer, I invite the viewer to reconsider female serial killers, the historically feminine craft of miniatures, and murder as entertainment.
