Here's another close-up on one of the many incredible playwrights taking part in our fundraiser on 12.18.12!!! We can't wait to work with Kristina!!!!
Kristina spent the first twenty years of her theater career in management, stage managing Off-Broadway and regionally, production managing for companies in San Francisco and New York, and most recently was the company manager for LAByrinth Theater Company in New York City for almost six years. She wrote her first play, LOVE SICK, after becoming a member of LAByrinth, and presented it at their Summer Intensive in 2009. LOVE SICK was also part of the Barn Series at the Public Theater and had a 29-hour workshop at the Cherry Pit Theater. The play was first produced by The Elephant Theater Company in Hollywood, CA, where it was named one of the Top Ten best reviewed production of 2011, and then in New York by AirPort Bar Productions. Kristina is a founding member of Sonoma County Rep, and a proud alum of Summer Repertory Theater in Santa Rosa, CA. Her newest play, THE RESTLESSNESS OF DESIRE, closed out LAByrinth’s Barn Series this June, and her adaptation of the Tennessee Williams’ short story, THE MATTRESS BY THE TOMATO PATCH, is currently included in a workshop of Williams’ adaptations being curated by Cincinnati Playhouse. Her newest piece, THE IDEA OF ME, was first presented at LAB’s Intensive at Connecticut College, and is to be workshopped in NYC in January.
