Selected Creative Works
Adapted and Directed by Joanne Gilbert.  ""You Can't Always Get What You Want: An Evening of Chamber Theatre"." Alma College. February 2005.
In order to explore the relationship between love and fear in the work of T.C. Boyle, I adapted and staged two of his short stories, "Sorry Fugu," and "Modern Love," dramatizing his prose while retaining every word of the original texts. In directing this production, I foregrounded the integral role of the narrator in prose fiction, illustrating the way narrators shape audience perceptions.
