Illana is no stranger to Short Plays to Nourish the Mind & Soul. She has directed work in prior seasons, including “Big Girl Games” and “Shut the Door.” We are so pleased to have her back. Her creative vision which allows her to freely think outside of the box is a wonderful pairing with our revival of SAMO ISN’T DEAD.
