Science Satire

Memoir of a craniotomy: coming in 2023
I had an acoustic neuroma resected in 2009.  The experience – diagnosis through recovery – I thank for directing me toward the career that I have today.  The memoir is: “You Are Here; What I’ve Learned from the Tumor In My Head,” to be released in 2023.  Here is the prologue.  (And here is a “patient story” article about my experience that is featured on the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center website.)

Plays

The Hellenworths’ Uncertainty Principle: inspired by brain surgery, this one is recently finished and sitting around waiting for me to assemble a staged reading It is a full-length, absurd, relatively dark comedy.  If you are interested in production, please email me.

The following plays were produced by Reality Aside Theatre, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit that I co-founded with my husband Wayne Yeager in 2007.  With the exception of Vacuum, they were staged at the Times Square Arts Center in New York between 2007 and 2009.  Vacuum premiered at the Wonderland Short Play Festival at Playwrights Horizons in New York in 2007.

Science education
I assisted in the development of a textbook for a course at Columbia College: “Scientific habits of mind”, by David Helfand.  The course is now a core requirement for undergraduates.
