Catch Dmae in CAUGHT!

After more than 12 years, I return to acting in a full production. Catch her in the high-concept performances and art installation of CAUGHT at Artists Repertory Theatre Oct. 1-29. The cast includes stellar actors Greg Watanabe (from Los Angeles), Sarah Hennessy and Chris Harder (who are both Artist Rep resident actors).

I am pleased beyond belief to work with all the artists including playwright Christopher Chen, director Shawn Lee and all the creative team at Artists Rep. The last time I worked there was in 1996 when then artistic director Allen Nause chose my play PICASSO IN THE BACK SEAT for its world premiere. During the last five years under the direction of artistic director Damaso Rodriguez, Artists Rep has grown and become more diverse in all its staffing, artists and productions. It’s an honor to return to the new Artist Rep and to work with such an amazing group of people
