Creative Practice as Research:

Intertextual Processes in Dramatic Adaptation


My creative practice as a writer and theatre maker constitutes my research. Most of my representative works to date are theatrical adaptations that engage a variety of cross-cultural, intertextual, and intermedial relationships. Included in this packet is also a work-in-progress that employs similar adaptation processes to a television project. An imperative to interrogate cultural assumptions and social inequities through a queer lens fuels every endeavor in my creative practice.    


Two professional producing entities have been my primary creative homes since 2007:

About Face Theatre (We Three Lizas, Packing, Leather Daddies) is a nationally recognized LGBTQ-focused nonprofit theatre based in Chicago. Scott Bradley has been an About Face Artistic Associate since 2010.


The Scooty & JoJo Show is a commercial production company founded by Scott Bradley and producer Jonny Stax to develop live multidisciplinary spectacles. For a catalog of its production history visit Scooty&JoJo portal on my professional website.
