Maggie is currently developing a thrilling new play, The Gap, with writer Makaela Shealy. This fall presented an opportunity for the very first readings of this new piece at the Tank, and February gave us the time to workshop major edits. The Gap has been named a finalist for Rave Theatre Festival.
The Gap follows a cheerleading team in a small town in the South, newly given the opportunity to redeem themselves at State. Biting, heightened realism is punctuated by expressive poetry, dreams, and dialogue with the audience.

The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals
Maggie recently had the opportunity to direct Monster House, a play written, staged, and performed within 24 hours. Rachel Calnek-Sugin's play follows two pairs of people as they debate what exactly Google Home might be doing. Thank you to Dion Lamar Mills for the photos and to everyone at the 24 Hour Plays for this opportunity!
