Little Patch of Ground: Description

I wrote the words and music for this play with songs, and Tom Shade and I co-directed a staged reading at Baltimore’s Single Carrot Theater in 2016, as part of my Rubys Artist Project Grant.

Set in the reimagined aftermath of Shakespeare’s Hamlet where an overburdened  planet is rejecting the buried dead, a gravedigger and her brother meet up with a newly re-surfaced Ophelia and Laertes, creating new implications for the question whether “to be or not to be.”
