Writer Statement

This story started as a character that I used to record on my iphone in middle school and has evolved in to an absurd epic. This hilarious story follows a confident immigrant mother as she chases her dreams of becoming a reality tv star in America. This is a funny tale filled with heart that revolves around American Pop Culture, NYC culture, and Queer culture. Aside from having this on a digital platform, I am performing live versions of this story in the hopes of following a similar journey to Phoebe Waller-Bridge's "Fleabag."This project is very marketable but also very niche and original. I think that the script speaks for itself but give it a read and I am sure you will feel the same way!
