I'm thrilled to talk about FUKT these days as I am producing it at the Tank for a limited run this fall.

FUKT is about traumatic memories - mine specifically - but the play isn't a typical play about trauma. Please ask me about it!

FUKT is immersive and has no fourth wall. It includes the audience and takes the audience's comfort into consideration, teaching strategies for dealing with potential triggers and updating our understanding of trauma and the resources available for healing. Happy to share a way to calm down after being triggered.
