23 years ago I directed my first play - The Dining Room by A.R. Gurney - for my high school drama class. As a director I gravitate towards plays that are new, risky, and relevant. I love working with playwrights and welcome the opportunity to support the development of new work.

CHICKEN AND BISCUITS
By Douglas Lyons
Presented by The Front Porch Arts Collective
In Partnership with Suffolk University
December 9, 2022 - January 8, 2023 @ The Modern Theater @ Suffolk
Hilarious and Heartwarming, Chicken & Biscuits is a raucous family comedy that made its Broadway debut in 2021. The story begins when the Jenkins family reunites to bury their father — hopefully without killing each other in the process. But any hopes for a peaceful reunion unravel when a family secret shows up at the funeral.
