Starring Maxine Muster, it is a short one woman play that explores the final moments of Eva Braun's life. We presented it at the NYWinterfest Festival in NYC for three performances February 2019.

In June 2018, I directed a one-woman short play, starring fellow actress Nina Lainville, called "Sophie: Afterlife" by JP Sclafani.
The play explores the life of Sophie Scholl, a young political activist who led the White Rose resistance group against Hitler and Naziism in WWII Germany. She and her brother Hans were found distributing anti-Hitler leaflets at at the University of Munich, and were charged with High Treason in February, 1943. She was just 21 years old.
