Shannon is a champion for new plays. Her passion and advocacy for my play THE BEAUTIFUL DARK led to its premiere at The Barrow Group and I'm grateful for it. Throughout the process Shannon brought a humanity and authenticity to my characters that shone though in the production. Her direction materialized into a richly realized world that felt like we were observing a family in their own home. I loved collaborating with Shannon and would do it again in a heartbeat.
