Sure As A Star

Full-Length One Act Play.

Cast Size: 2F.

Award-winning sitcom actress Madeline Sullivan is in New York to star in yet another Broadway revival of Gypsy, much to the disbelief of everyone else involved. When she hires college senior Emma to be her assistant amidst a life-changing medical emergency, they come to depend on one another more than either of them ever expected. They become irrevocably entwined in a web of obscure pop culture references and Chinese take-out as the fictional 'Madam Rose' slowly takes over their lives. A story of musical theatre divas, mothers and daughters, and living a private life in public.

Transformative Works

I am a prolific writer of transformative work across various platforms in various fandoms. I focus mainly on exploring character dynamics and familial relationships while patching holes and filling in the narrative gaps. I like to ride the roller coaster between high camp comedy and devastating humanity. Please feel free to email me if you're curious.
