“After six years and 22 drafts, I’m finally premiering my full-length drama, IMPRINTS this January in New York – a compelling, humorous and poignant portrayal of how trauma affects the family – also semi-autobiographical. The script is loosely based off of a journal my brother kept for the first 72 days I was in a coma, with a powerful message about the mind-body connection in trauma, and how creativity, art, music, and theatre can heal the individual as well as society. Because of its themes of the themes of prevention, PTSD education, and survivor empowerment, this is also a powerful message to share with the community. In order to make this production possible, I’m creating something every day on Patreon. You can pledge a dollar, or whatever you’d like, and in return I’ll be sending music, art, and a bunch of other creative goodies and giveaways.
“Imprints” has an important message that needs to be seen, and every little bit counts! Patreon.com/amyo

A young girl wakes up in a surgical ICU to find her world forever changed. But even a coma cannot erase the imprints left from a burdening secrets of sexual abuse.  Forced to come to terms with a dark past kept hidden from her family, she now faces another self, Patty, born from the trauma she had hoped to forget. Imprints explores the bondage of secrets, the re-membering of a life broken open by trauma and the healing power of art.


A poignant story of a family, ripped apart, reassembling with the imprints of a heartbreaking past.

Our 10th Festival Season

There is no question why Venus/Adonis has taken the world of playwrighting festivals by storm, becoming one of the largest festival in the country in just 5 years.
It’s because playwrights enjoy staging their plays with us!
We are a group of playwrights who, after years of staging our plays in NYC festivals, said: “Why don’t we create a festival that includes everything we dreamt of having?”

The result is beyond our wildest expectations.
