As a playwright, Emma writes singing stones and swallows that carry letters between worlds. She re-imagines and re-vitalizes female voices that might not otherwise be heard. Her current work focuses on marginalized female characters in myth and folklore.
Emma’s plays have been performed at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, Wales, the McCarter Theatre Lab, Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts, and at Theatre Intime in Princeton, NJ.
Emma’s play, Trailing Rhiannon, was featured on the Princeton University homepage, accompanied by this video by Nick Donnoli.
