Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

2015 NNPN's Best New Short Play at City Theatre's Summer Shorts Festival

In a small, rustic bakery located in the heart of “Little Haiti” Miami, FL, two Haitian-American sisters grapple with grief, identity, and the complicated realities of immigrant life. Previously hit with several code violations, they prepare for the Miami Dade Health Department’s next inspection, and find themselves speeding toward an explosive culture collision. Leonide struggles to convince her sister to break tradition in the name of survival. But on this day, of all days, marking the anniversary of her husband’s murder, Maryse believes that tradition is all she has left.

Published in the Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 41st Series


Risen from the Dough received its premiere production at The Ensemble Studio Theatre in NY, NY, at the 2009 Going to the River Festival. It was directed by Holli Harms
