"Moments of comic genius - huge laughs with each of her lines."

 Justin Steensma, Managing Director, Pro Musica Tours, NY

"A palpable hit for an enthusiastic audience."

Alan Woods, ICWP Archives at the Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Unit, The Ohio State University

"The beauty of these plays is that the playwright doesn't tell you how to play it, she leaves the door open for you to discover the richness of the subtext."

Rose Leininger, Artistic Director, Red Hen Productions

Premiere Production: Harvesting the Marigold Seeds was first presented at the Red Hen Theatre Cleveland, Ohio, in June 2005. It was directed by Rose Leininger and subsequently won the 2008 Kansas City Women’s Playwriting Contest.
