• 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.

    October 4-6: I'm on retreat with FORGE Fuel in the woods of Connecticut editing the pilot of my bilingual comedy, FIRST JEN.


    Ongoing: Cupid's Comeback and The Drop Off are completing their festival circuits! Cupid's Comeback was just nominated for Best Film at the Lovesick Film Festival and The Drop Off was just nominated for Best Ensemble Cast at the Women's Comedy Film Festival.


    I'm learning how to play the ukulele with my good friend and jazz musician, Caroline Getz! Feel free to give her band, Hexual Ceiling, a listen.


    In Development:

    Recent accolades for FIRST JEN, the bilingual pilot I'm writing:

    • Finalist and Scholarship Recipient for the Reproductions Summer Screenplay Contest (see here for more!)
    • Finalist for the Orchard Project's inaugural Episodic TV Lab
    I am currently working on a verbatim/devised theatre piece about climate change and relationships to the maternal, tentatively called On Mothers and Mother Earth with artist Salome Egas. Stay tuned for more details!
  • Devising (v.)

    a method of theatre-making that originates from collaborative, often improvisatory work by a performing ensemble

    TBD: The Live Devising Project

    By the Cucumber Dogs, in association with Sitting Shotgun

    "It is inspiring to see the international ensemble of Cucumber Dogs collaborating seamlessly. There is much to learn from them about efficient communication, respect, and putting the mutual goal above individual ambitions. For that alone, TBD: The Live Devising Project is worth attending for anybody who interacts with other people (which means everybody)."
