Echo's Texas Shout Out

New Play Contest - A Winning Play!

To be produced in Fall 2024.

Dallas, Texas Writer!

The Right Path Academy houses a group of silly, intense, thoughtful, and difficult high school seniors. During their last semester at the run-down boarding school, nightmares begin, shadowy figures come and go, and one of the teens goes missing. This Southern gothic, coming-of-age play explores the messiness of growing up and our impact on other's lives.
