Bree has previously directed for Mildred’s Umbrella, Firecracker Productions, and Blueprint Theatre. Over the past several months she has been getting to know the Shunya production team and digging into the script.

“I’m SO looking forward to working with the great team at Shunya (who produced one of the first plays I ever saw in Houston) to bring this heart-warming story of a complicated family struggling to find peace, both in this life and on the way to the next, as long-held secrets are revealed. It’s a project we all believe in, and will bring heartbreak and laughter to audiences!”
