I stumbled into dramaturgy. I took a class because my favorite teacher was going to teach it, and I couldn’t miss that. Thank goodness I didn’t because in that class I learned how to take my love of stories and go deeper. How to keep the world of the play alive and keep a play’s production honest to the play’s words. How to bring new plays to life and how a dramaturg can help a theatre company grow.
Shortly after graduating, I moved to Seattle to work as a theatre professional. I found Fantastic.Z Theatre Company and worked with them as a guest and now resident dramaturg and have now grown a specialty for queer and period pieces (or queer period pieces should the play cross my way). Aside from production research, I also perform talkbacks and work with playwrights devising their own work.
