In the midst of rehearsing for Just Say DA!: Direct Object, Steph talks about her relationship with objects over the years…

57 Boyfriends
Steph's semi-autobiographical one-woman show was a big hit at the Frontera Fest 2009 Short Fringe, making it all the way to Best of the Fest! Co-directed by Kirk German and Heather Huggins, Steph's performance, which featured two of her journals, a bottle of wine, and a trunk full of junk, was hailed for its "unflinching honesty" and "courage." One night, she even performed through a torrential downpour and a black-out! We're proud to say that 57 Boyfriends was sassy, irreverent, and thought-provoking, just like Steph herself!

Just Say DA!!
Since Steph wasn't yet a DA! member when we debuted Direct Object last winter, she is now finally discovering the joys of "Object Playtime" as we move towards mounting our full-length production for next year. Although she started out by "dating" a newspaper (following the legacy of Robin Grace Thompson), she's started to show interest in a certain storage trunk (her co-star from 57 Boyfriends)...

She just finished performing in the latest incarnation of her one-woman show, 57 Boyfriends, a DA!-produced entry for FronteraFest 2009 which advanced to Best of the Fest.
