Description

These are the memories of a young girl’s hot, sweaty summer in Brooklyn. Can she survive being caught between a disintegrating family at home and racial violence on the streets? All she wants to do is jump in the waves at Coney Island and see the fireworks. This play was written at the LaMama playwriting symposium in Umbria, Italy.

History of the Play

Joan has been thinking about Almost 13 for a number of years. At the LaMama Directors Symposium in Umbria, Italy, under the guidance of Brandon Jacob Jenkins, she found the inspiration to write the 15 character version of the play. Now, with the help of dramaturge Catherine Fillioux, she is converting it into a one woman show.
