Director: Eve Muson

Location: UMBC

Character role: Hecete


November 2019 I was asked to step in a week before this production opened due to actor injuries. It was a whirlwind to get off book, figure out how to puppeteer moles, and learn how to crack a whip in one week. It was a challenge that I couldn't say no to! "Girls on a Dirt Pile" is a modern retelling of The Rape of Persephone and the timeless injustices of Womanhood.

It was very refreshing to play a character who wasn't sweet or funny but rather vicious and self indulgent.
