JCE for Me!
I'm so excited to announce that FROM THE DEEP has won the Boston University Cultural Endowment grant, and the funds will go to support the production of FTD at Boston Public Works in March 2015 at the Boston Center for the Arts Plaza Black Box Theatre.
The Boston University Jewish Cultural Endowment supports programs of significance to the Jewish cultural life of the University community. In past years, the JCE has funded scholarly conferences, theater and dance performances, concerts, literary events, curricular enrichment, and the visual arts. Our mission is to foster an appreciation of Jewish culture in all its richness and diversity.
I wanted to also thank our fearless director Lindsay Eagle, for her excellent grant writing skills, and for helping us organize and apply for this wonderful grant. I would also like to thank Sara Bookin-Weiner and Charles Linshaw for their contributions to the proposal and our upcoming outreach and eduction platforms through the play.
FROM THE DEEP is also the 2nd place winner of the Kennedy Center Latinidad Playwriting Award, the winner of the Pestalozzi New Play Prize, and a semi-finalist at nuVoices Festival. Through the Kennedy Center and the merits of the play, I was able to attend The O'Neill as a Playwright Observer and Kennedy Center Fellow at the 50th National Playwrights Conference.

If I update this blog... that's probably a sign that I'm not writing... I should be writing. Right now.
