TL as Agent Taylor in

 The Vineyard Theater Production of:

"Is This A Room?"

A true story, still unfolding. June 3, 2017. A 25-year-old former Air Force linguist named Reality Winner is surprised at her home by the FBI, interrogated, and then charged with leaking evidence of Russian interference in U.S elections. Reality remains in jail with a record-breaking sentence. The FBI transcript of her interrogation is the heart of IS THIS A ROOM, conceived as a play and directed by Obie Award-winner Tina Satter, in which an extraordinary human drama unfolds between the complex and witty Reality (Emily Davis), and the agents who question her. As Reality’s autonomy shrinks before her eyes, a simmering real-life thriller emerges, asking what it is to have honor in this American moment, and how the personal can reverberate globally.

Waafrica 123 was written by Kenyan playwright Nick Hadikwa Mwaluko.

TL is a New York Neo-Futurist

The New York Neo- Futurists attempt to perform 30 plays in an hour every Friday and Saturday night at 10:30pm at the Kraine Theater. All of the plays are written by the ensemble based on their own personal experiences. The ensemble are always themselves, they never play characters. They infuse movement, music, poetry, and game to create the Neo-futuristic aesthetic.
