Why did you choose to work with Shrewd Productions?
Shrewd productions produces the kind of theatre that I hope to continue to work on throughout my career as an artist. It is rare that you find a company so early on that has the same values and interests as yourself, and I am excited to be a part of a company that provides opportunities for women, queer people, and people of color. I love that I get to spend my time reading scripts that fuel my passion for the theatre.
