Winner of the 2011 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award.
Five public school teachers are caught in the limbo of the disciplinary “Rubber Room,” waiting for their cases to be heard and their fates decided. Poignant and funny drama, it’s like The Breakfast Club for teachers, as thy share secrets with each other and begin to look into their own hearts. Winner of the 2012 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award, Evelyn in Purgatory has enjoyed multiple productions since that time and was published by Samuel French in 2016.
