When I came to Shenandoah, it felt like I had come home. As a specialist in medieval drama, I love directing medieval plays and making them accessible to modern students and audiences. Favorite projects have been directing SU students in "The Chester Nativity," performed at the University of Toronto, and "Robin Hood and the Potter," which was performed in Middle English at the Southeastern Medieval Association conference. Other SU productions include Henry IV part 1, Sweet Charity, Pride and Prejudice, Assassins, Noises Off, Anything Goes, and Anton in Show Business.
