Writing Credits

Brittany developed Night Terrors: a Trio of Plays under the guidance of Laura Schellhardt at Northwestern University. The first play, Infection, premiered at Episcopal High School where Brittany spent a week as a guest artist, working with the actors and teaching playwriting workshops. The second play, Alone, was first performed as a staged reading at the Foundry in Chicago. The first full production of Alone was at the Public House Theatre as part of How to Not Die Alone: a Love Story, which also included Another Time (written by Brittany) and Profiles in Courage by Michael Stock.
