Tiffany is thrilled to share that TWIGS AND BONE is getting published with Broadway Play Publishing! This wild, dark, funny, and terrifying play has just started the publishing process, but another announcement will be posted the minute the script is available. Special Thanks to Aubri O’Connor and Lynn Sharp Spears for bringing my spooky little play baby to life with Nu Sass, and to Steven Landry and Etienna Wright for their lovingly rendered workshop production at Acadiana Repertory Theatre (Which only happened because Cody Daigle-Orians is a rock-star playwright who champions other playwrights and alley ooped the script from Great Plains Theatre Commons conference to Steven and Etienna’s awesome eyeballs) More thanks go to Jennie Webb, Katherine James, and Alan Blumenfeld for taking the first draft under wing at Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum so many years ago. It’s amazing how many hands and how much work goes into birthing a play!
and in other exciting publishing news…

Tiffany uploaded her latest play to New Play Exchange: THE PRINCESS AMPERSAND HAS SOME NOTES! This baby is a brand-spankin-new queer fairytale adventure play (with lots of sword fighting) and ready to read/consider.
Once upon a time there was a princess
who fell in love with the seamstress’ daughter.
So her parents had her put to sleep
in the hopes that a prince,
or a duke,
or any kind of male identifying dude, really,
would awaken her with a kiss.
Ten years later, she’s still asleep and knocked up!
(Who came up this stupid plan, anyway?)
Good thing her one true love
(Bronwyn, the seamstress’ daughter, duh)
has finally made her way to the Princess’ bedside
to wake her up
and help her exact revenge on her parents,
and the stupid fecking witch bitch who cast the spell in the first place.
THE PRINCESS AMPERSAND HAS SOME NOTES is a queer love story wrapped in a fairytale and covered in blood.
