Her play Love Person, a four-part love story in Sanskrit, ASL, and English, has been produced to critical acclaim around the country. It was developed during a Many Voices residency at the Playwrights' Center, workshopped at the Lark Play Development Center in NYC, and selected for reading at the National New Play Network (NNPN) conference 2006. Love Person was then produced in a NNPN rolling world premiere at Mixed Blood Theatre (MN), Marin Theater (CA), and Phoenix Theatre (IN), in the 2007/08 season. In 2008/09 it was produced at Live Girls! Theatre in Seattle, Alley Repertory Theatre in Boise, and Victory Gardens Theatre in Chicago; and received the Stavis Playwriting Award in 2009.
