PROJECTS Now, Lloyd Suh’s “Jesus in India” (Theater at St. Clement’s); next, Ari Roth’s “Andy and the Shadows” (Theater J in Washington) and Jessica Dickey’s “Charles Ives Take Me Home” (Rattlestick Playwrights Theater).

BEGINNINGS “Being the artistic program director at the Lark Play Development Center was critical to developing my directorial eye for new plays.”

AESTHETIC “There is nothing like directing the first and second production of a new play you believe in. Or directing multiple plays by the same playwright. I approach each play as a co-creation between the playwright and myself, and my productions reflect this collaborative vision.”

CHANGING TIMES “I am a director who happens to be a woman. This doesn’t mean that I am not grateful to be a part of a strong community of women directors who are ambitious and fierce and inspiring. And I feel responsible for strengthening this network of women directors for the next generation, just as the previous generation has done for us.”

DREAM PROJECT “Sheila Callaghan and I are now in the midst of co-creating ‘WATER (A Meditation On ...).’ ”
