I'm quite fond of this thrilling little play. I wrote Dispatch last October as I was getting in the mood for Halloween and after that's it's gone on to great success.

In 2018, The Grind became my first play to be produced internationally when it was performed at the 2018 Sydney Short + Sweet Festival in Sydney, Australia. That play went on to win first place in Judge's Choice and second place in People's Choice in its series in the festival and Third Place for Judge's Choice in the Wildcard Finals for the entire festival. This week, I got more excited news about these great festivals!
