About A Little Life at Savoy Theatre 

A Little Life follows the lives of four friends living in New York City, as they attempt to forge their own futures. At the heart of the group is Jude, a brilliant but haunted lawyer whose past traumas of child abuse threaten to unravel his life. As the four friends navigate the complexities of adulthood, including addiction, pride, and ambition, they are forced to confront the question of whether they can truly understand and help Jude with his deep suffering. A Little Life is a beautifully introspective look into the complexities of trauma and the ways in which it can affect every facet of our existence.

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
