VIRAL: a four-play cycle on security, suffering, and you premiered in December, 2013. Based on Wallace Shawn's monologue The Fever, it was devised in independent collaboration with Summer Bills, Trey Ervine, Kevin Gallo, and Paige Goodloe. The plays were dramatic responses to the actors sense of their own privilege & responsibility, and were performed in New York apartments for audiences of fewer than 15.
