New Works at the Weathervane
Following the success of THE CONGRESSWOMEN, the Weathervane Theatre has commissioned Kelly to write a new play which will have its premiere reading in the Fall of 2022!

THE CONGRESSWOMEN at WVT

NH's Weathervane Theatre presented THE CONGRESSWOMEN both in-person and virtually in October 2020.
Plays during Plagues
COVID may have kept us apart, but quarantine couldn't keep us from being creative. Kelly participated in readings for awesome organizations such as NEW YORK STAGE AND FILM, Menaced Minds Productions, as well as the brand new COMPANY-19. For the latter, Kelly played "Mo" in a live-streamed reading of THE RELIGION THING by Renee Calarco, which is currently available to stream here.

The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe

O'Brien.
