As in on-screen romance, not E = mc2 ...
Gotta love being on set after a short turnaround! With 12 hours notice, I had a blast stepping in for an actress on the set of "Chemistry Test," an upcoming comedic short film from James Fagan (Comedy Central, and a fellow BC alum!). Watch my "day in the life" video of this experience on TikTok.
Period piece? Check.
Romantic lead? Check.
Flirty gal ready for a life on the run? You bet.

CENTRAL SQUARE THEATER'S VIRTUAL WOMEN & SCIENCE THEATER FESTIVAL
I was absolutely thrilled to be back in the rehearsal room (on Zoom!) as part of CST's virtual Women & Science Theater Festival. I played several female characters - from a dutiful Victorian Irish sister to the revolutionary physician Alice Hamilton and even a robot - in the "In the Play Lab: Original Ten-Minute Plays" event!

In February 2020, I was cast in my first New York City production. I was ecstatic to begin rehearsals playing Kat, a blue-haired goth teenager with a lot of mommy issues. However, due to COVID-19, the production was unfortunately cancelled. In an exciting update, the play was added to the Kilroys List 2020. Check out the Killing Mom production website here...
