  • Berry Season was a hit in London! The comedy took top honors as Audience Favorite among the ten winners of the 2016 British Theatre Challenge. Sky Blue Theatre interviewed me after handing me the prize: YouTube and you can watch the winning performance on YouTube as well. Lazy Bee Scripts (Southampton, U.K.) now wants to publish this play about a guy whose libido is launched on the crimson seas of desire.

  • The Sleeping Beauty of Brooklyn just closed a 3-week run off-broadway in Schreiber Shorts 2017 at T. Schreiber Studios. Emily Chastain & Julian Gavilanes were hysterical dealing with a dead body as they prepped for the showing of their condo. Sleeping Beauty premiered in Baltimore, becoming The Sleeping Beauty of Burbank in San Diego before the New York production.

  • Gladys In Wonderland is soon to have her 23rd outing. The comedy plays March 11-12 in North Port, Florida in a production at Harbor Isles Community Theatre.

  • Frozen Fish Sticks is going down under in March. The one-act comedy will be produced at 3B Creative Theatre in Buderim, Queensland Australia. It will be the 6th Australian production of a FrisinoToohey play. The gang in Buderim produced In The Tank last year.

  • In The Tank has now been produced 70 times around the world. You can catch a video of Tank on YouTube , in a 2015 production by Britain's Drip Action Theatre.

  • The playwright is gearing up for the opening of her first musical. Judy and the General, a re-telling of the Judith/Holofernes tale from the Bible will have a staged, book-in-hand reading at Spotlighters Theatre in Baltimore May 12th and 13th. Much more to come on this show for which she has written the book, lyrics and music.
