• Did someone order spunk

    with a sensitive side?

    Monica Furman was raised in Brooklyn by her Jew-ish

    Russian-speaking family from Ukraine, so she's working out

    her dual-identity crisis by being an artist instead of a doctor

    like her babushka wanted.


    Caution: dry sense of humor (hey, I'm from Brooklyn!).

  • Devised Theatre Work

    I love ensemble work, particularly devised theatre for social change. Take a look at a few projects I had the privilege to direct.

    Cross the Line

    Two excerpts from two separate projects I directed. The first, And Again, is about the double meaning of 'revolution.' The second, The Drought Project, is about our personal relationships to water, or lack thereof.
