I'm directing several shows for Cardinal Stage this year, and actively looking for freelance projects for 2020 and beyond.
Ada and the Engine
By Lauren Gunderson
Cardinal Stage, Spring 2019
I have been wanting to direct this play since I first read it and can't wait to share it with our Cardinal audience. This is a fascinating piece about the brilliant woman considered to be the first computer programmer. Tickets and more information here.
Book, Music and Lyrics by Creighton Irons and Sean Mahoney
I'm working with this fantastic team on developing this exciting rock musical about the first women's labor movement. 11th Hour Theatre Company produced a concert reading in Winter 2016 and was featured in Philly Magazine. The show was recently produced in Japan (in Japanese) and is looking for a home for its American Premiere.

Emily's show features a cast of 4 women and a story that centers on power, friendship and responsibility. It's got a graphic novel flavor, with a healthy does of environmentalist allegory mixed in. It makes you laugh and then punches you in the gut. We workshopped this new musical at Indiana University in Summer 2019 and are currently exploring next steps.
