a new chapter & grapes of wrath

hello internets!

here's a bit of what i've been up to lately if you're so inclined.

the last three weeks, i've been making my home in this lovely place. earlier this summer, i was cast in "Grapes of Wrath" at Sacramento Theatre Company, and it's been a whirlwind being a part of putting together such an epic show in less than a month. 

but, we did it, and we did it together. which is a testimony to the story of Grapes of Wrath, itself. (read the book if you haven't & you will understand. or come see the show! :))

if i've said it once, i've said it a thousand times - i love this city. i am so happy to be in Sacramento doing what i love the most. to say i feel at home in every sense of the word would be an understatement, but it's the best way i know how to express how i feel about life right now. this place is home, what i'm doing is home, and i could not feel more lucky, more grateful, more honored, to be here, now. i am a part of something big & important & isn't that what good theatre (good art, really) is all about? 

Grapes of Wrath is a story of survival, of hope in the darkest of times, of human kindness when there seems to be nothing left. and this group of people i have the privilege of working with is an example of those very things. i am so so very lucky. 

i could write so much about what i've experienced & continue to experience through this production, but Jim Casy says it so much better than I ever could. 

"but, when they're all workin' together - kind of harnessed to the whole shebang - that's right, that's holy."

  1. oh my soul, i didn't even know there's a play for Grapes. and now i'm sad i live in the south of CA because surely i'd love to see it (especially since my husband JUST finished the book). i honestly can't imagine the show... and the complexities of it because holy steinbeck. :)

    so happy to have found you!
