With Gloria Crist, Steve Kidd, and The CORE Org.
Tiverton & Providence, RI
This Winter and Spring, I'll be completing the 300 hours needed for a Massachusetts K-12 Teaching License. And what better way to learn than from some of the most amazing, dedicated students and mentors. I'll be working with elementary, middle, and high school students from Tiverton and Providence, focusing on Social-Emotional learning and community building.
I love these guys, and I am so happy to watch them grow.

This November, I'll be playing Lorrie Daniels in a staged reading of Will Brumley's The Clinic; a new play following six workers at Wichita Woman’s Health in the heat of the anti-abortion violence that follows the overturning of Roe v Wade. In 2019, The Clinic was a Semi-Finalist at the Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference.
I can't wait to dive into this frequently-changing, beautiful text. Come check it out. All proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood.

In October, I'll be ~dancing~ and devising with the Neo-Political Cowgirls in their production of Hysteria. In the Old South Church, we'll be creating an immersive Halloween experience of ghost stories and dances inspired by women who were shut away after being diagnosed with "hysteria."
It's historical, it's collaborative, and proceeds will go to The Lucas Flint Memorial Scholarship at Emerson College.

Last April, I wrote this ten-minute solo piece as a requiem and celebration for my father, Leonard Houlker. I used his personal belongings as a vehicle to tell his story, spanning all 38 years of his life. I miss him every day, but Everything Must Go really allowed me to connect with him and thank him for everything.
A huge thank you to Jonathan Fried, my mentor and director for this project. Check it out on my "Media" page.
