Red Shirt Entertainment: St. Augustine, FLA



One of my plays is in the Redshirt Rooftop Reading series starting tomorrow. "St. Augustine, FLA." is based on a true story I heard in June. I was visiting the retreat center I ended up doing my month-long meditation at in July. The head of the center, Jenine Katz, had many fascinating and wonderful stories about her spiritual growth and the process of forgiveness. "St. Augustine" was one of the first I heard and noted it in my mind. When I came back to New York and heard about the Red Shirt series I asked Jenine if I could turn her story into a short play. She agreed and now here we are.
