Drama

Stella’s Attic is a one-act play based on the story of Stella Williams, a confessed serial killer from Gallitzin, Pa. According to her own posthumous letter, she murdered her five children in the 1920s and instructed police to find the mummified bodies in her attic trunk.

The play focuses on the themes of choice and the limits of choice by a society or culture. This is also a theme I explore in my novels. The true story also served as partial inspiration for my short story “Inheritance.”
