October 2023: I was awarded a Lortel Foundation Micro-commission to work further on my Mississippi project.
May 2023: I was awarded a grant from Barnard College, where I teach playwriting, to support the writing and development of “Moseley.”
“Moseley” will draw upon the troubled and troubling history of my Mississippi forebears, many of whom were enslavers. Via this history, and via a personal lens, an examination of my own place in the world, I hope to uncover and explore links between the past and the present.
I’ve worked on much of this material in prose form, am taking a different approach here as I write a play on the subject. The grant will support travel to Mississippi, and also a workshop of the script, once it is completed.
I’m thrilled to be working with Obie winners Ari Fliakos and Caroline Lagerfelt. Both are terrific, versatile and experienced actors who will bring so much to our production. To read more about the whole cast and artistic team, click here.
I’m thrilled to have been awarded a Creative Engagement Grant from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council in support of my upcoming autumn production.
In August 2018, I was awarded a grant from The Artist’s Patron Fund to support my next production. I am grateful for the support!
“Summit”, a new play that Andy is writing for Ana Graham and Antonio Vega of Por Piedad Teatro, was developed during a residency at Berkeley Rep Ground Floor in June 2018. Along with Ana and Antonio, the performers were Dinah Berkeley, and Andy.
An explosive comedy about love, relationships, and the consequences of a lousy backhand.

This Is My Office‘s fall production with Playco is one of the shows presented in Volume 3 of Chance Magazine , which “[looks] at the world through the lens of theatrical design.” There is a great spread featuring Drama Desk Nominee David Barlow, focusing on the terrific work of set designer Andrew Boyce, lighting designer Tyler Micoleau, costume designer Kaye Voyce, and director Davis McCallum. It was a great team, one that I really loved working with. (And while I’m at it – let me sing the praises of our amazing sound designer Peter John Still!) Chance is a really cool magazine, and the photos, at least the ones I’ve seen thusfar, really capture some interesting tones from my play.
My script for one actress, The Two Tanyas, will be workshopped at New Dramatists next week as part of their Creativity Fund workshop. There will be a reading of the piece on the 27th at 3pm. This is a play I’ve been working on for a while. It was formerly entitled “The Dowager”. Recently, I’ve been collaborating with the actress Florencia Lozano, and the director Erik Pearson.
