    As part of the Richmond Virginia annual Acts of Faith Festival, Woven Orbits theater present “Carrying the Load” by playwright Mahasin D. Shamsid-Deen and Directed by Haseena Abdur-Rahman. 

    Young Clara Evans elopes with her beau Elijah in 1920s Georgia and they become part of the early 20th century great Black migration north to escape unsatisfactory economic opportunities and the harsh segregationist laws of the south.   Unmet expectations and the Depression are burdensome until Clara embraces a completely new way of life.   Her new faith drives her to help open an alternative school to ‘self’ educate Black students in the 1930s which is met with considerable resistance the Detroit Board of Education.  Undaunted, this quiet unassuming woman continues and expands what is known today as Americas’ first African American owned and operated private schools

    The ghost of Sarah Bernhardt has a secret. The greatest actress in the French-speaking world has the chance to make a come-back. It is 2015 and a Canadian backpacker and musician finds respite in the Père Lachaise cemetery when, after trying to suicide, she is rescued by this golden lady, this magician of emotions. Is it a trick of the light or has Sarah manipulated her young visitor to switch places with her so that she can get another chance at stardom?


    My play was commissioned by the UBC Players for the university's Centennial Celebration in March 2015. Please contact me for more information and script rights:

    Lost Boy Found in Whole Foods, winner of the Francesca Prize will have a LORT premiere at Portland Center Stage, Portland, ME, March 1-20, 2016 directed by Markus Potter.

    Christine—a middle aged, middle class, recently divorced mother—finds a cause in the Whole Foods produce section. Her “cause” is Gabriel, a Sudanese “lost boy,” who fled civil war in his own country to find himself in snowy North America. Christine invites Gabriel to live with her and her teenage daughter in their suburban house and the drama ensues. In Lost Boy Found in Whole Foods, one woman’s straightforward desire to help becomes a story uncovering the difficulty of understanding others.

The International Centre for Women Playwrights is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women playwrights around the world.
