We have all heard the story of the Manson murders on August 9 and 10, 1969. Actress Sharon Tate was one of seven victims. For years, I researched the case and thought someone should tell the story of Sharon’s mother, Doris Tate. She turned her grief into activism and become one of America’s biggest crime victim advocates.
After the election, I decided it was time to finally write a play about Doris.
After 9 drafts, my first play needs some voices. DORIS TATE will be workshopped and get her first public reading on March 14 by the theatre department at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh. I am so excited to explore this work and see the story of this wonderful woman onstage.
