I have been incredibly lucky to have a long and productive relationship with Eastern Mennonite University’s theater department. Beginning with my MFA thesis production of Love’s Labour’s Lost, I have served as a frequent guest artist and educator for EMU theater since 2009. I have led Shakespeare workshops, taught theater history classes, mentored young directors, attended the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival with their delegation, and directed three plays there. My connections with EMU theater students have been a source of great joy. In many cases, they have gone from students to collaborators and friends.
Our work together includes Love’s Labour’s Lost (2010), JB (2011), and The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon (2016).
