Erin is a writer-director, who recently finished her short film, CC DANCES THE GO-GO, which she shot in Tucson and cut in Los Angeles. She is a fellow at The MacDowell Colony this September. 

In her projects, roles for actresses are plentiful, and female and LGBTQ stories are primary. Erin writes with specific actors’ voices in mind and collaborates with a core company of actors, including Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Brooke Bloom, Candy Buckley, Aysan Celik, Emily Dorsch, Crystal Finn, Natalie Gold, Sofia Jean Gomez, Jessica Hecht, Nancy Lemenager, Teresa Avia Lim, Sally Murphy, Summer Spiro, Rebecca Whitehurst, and Zoë Winters.

Erin’s play SISTREN was selected for the 25th Annual Playwrights’ Week at The Lark in November 2018. She co-directed and co-produced her play OLDER LADY at the Alchemical Theatre Lab in 2016 in partnership with the actors for whom she wrote it. Other pilots and plays include PRODUCT, GUIDANCE, UNAVAILABLE, I’VE BEEN STUCK IN THIS BAR SINCE THE MID-‘90s…, and SECOND ACT PROBLEMS.

Erin is working on a new piece called PASTURE about dancers who can no longer dance, a play called ASHRAM about the guru her dad used to follow, a digital series called PLATONIC about friendship conducted via voicemail, and a digital series called STARF*CKER about a woman who has intrusive dreams about famous actresses.
