My first post on this new website! I'm currently working at The Hudson Valley Shakespeare festival for my ninth season, and playing Paulina (see pic attached). It has been extraordinary for me to explore this woman, this play. I first came into contact with the play in 1992, a production I saw in London by the RSC that shattered my world. It has remained a favorite ever since. We worked on the play in grad school, and I've seen a few productions since... this play has crept into my bones, my soul, my heart. I think Paulina is teaching me things about how to be in the world, and I am trying to listen. I feel I am a stronger woman after this summer, more powerful from having stood in her shoes for a bit.
