They find themselves stuck in a run-down cabin in the middle of nowhere, with harsh and unfriendly growing conditions, nosy neighbors, dangerous locals, and menacing law enforcement."

Recently, on Inauguration Day, Emily organized a reading of Lauren Gunderson's The Taming. As part of an agreement with the publisher, Gunderson announced in November that anyone who wanted to would be allowed to perform a reading of the play for free.
The Taming is about three very different women - a liberal blogger, a conservative senator's aide, and a Miss America contestant - attempting to work together to rewrite the Constitution. The political nature of the play, as well as it's emphasis on women's voices, make it a perfect artistic protest to the incoming administration.
Emily directed and produced the play, in addition to performing as Patricia. The one-night engagement, featuring three other women theatre artists in the Bay Area, was held on January 20 at the Exit Theatre in San Francisco. The cast and audience raised funds and were able to make a sizable donation to the ACLU! Pictured above is Emily (center) with Kelli McCrann as Katherine (left) and Toni Maddocks as Bianca (right), in the middle of a "dance break for America." Emily is very thankful to have had the opportunity to respond artistically to the recent election.
Emily is organizing, directing, and performing in a staged reading of Lauren Gunderson's The Taming on January 20, 2017. After the results of the recent election, playwright Lauren Gunderson and Playscripts, Inc. announced that anyone who would like to perform a reading of Gunderson's play The Taming on Inauguration Day may do so for free. The #TameTrump project has become a widespread artistic response to the election, with over 25 Inauguration Day readings planned across the country.
Loosely inspired by Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, The Taming is about three very different women: a staffer for a conservative senator, a liberal blogger, and a Miss America contestant. Somehow, they all find themselves stuck in a hotel room attempting a Constitutional Convention. They spend the whole play hashing out their views, playing Founding Father, and rewriting the defining document of our democracy, in the hopes of saving the nation. Emily will be playing Patricia, the aide to a deadbeat Republican senator. She is joined in the photo below with castmates Toni Maddocks (left) as Bianca and Kelli McCrann (center) as Katherine.
Emily is extremely excited and empowered to join women across the country in presenting this play as an artistic protest to the incoming administration. The reading will be performing at the Exit Theatre's café space in San Francisco, and while the admission is free, the cast will be taking donations for the ACLU. Check out the Facebook event for the reading, and please join Emily for this anti-Inauguration in San Francisco!
A Kind of Murder opens in select theaters this weekend!
The film, directed by Andy Goddard, is an adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith novel The Blunderer. IMDb summarizes: "Walter Stackhouse is rich, successful and unhappily married to the beautiful but damaged Clara. His desire to be free of her feeds his obsession with Kimmel, a man suspected of brutally murdering his own wife. But when Clara is found dead in suspicious circumstances, Walter's string of lies and his own guilty thoughts seem enough to condemn him. As his life becomes dangerously entwined with Kimmel's, a ruthless cop is increasingly convinced he has found a copycat killer in Walter and aims to nail both murderers."
A Kind of Murder stars Patrick Wilson as Walter Stackhouse, Jessica Biel as Clara Stackhouse, Eddie Marsan as Kimmel and Haley Bennett as Ellie. Emily plays the role of Martha, Walter's secretary and Ellie's friend. A Kind of Murder is Emily's first major feature film. She had an incredible time making it with such talented artists, and she feels so fortunate to be able to share it!
Below is a sneak peek featuring Emily as Martha. Be sure to see the rest of A Kind of Murder in theaters or On Demand! To find out where you can watch the film, visit the Magnolia Pictures website!
