In the Spring of 2015, Brendon worked with director David Ledoux and student artists to adapt Shakespeare’s The Tempest for McCarter Theatre Center’s Education Program in Princeton, New Jersey.  Brendon is currently in development on another play for younger performers called “The Lost Bavarian Folk Tales of Franz Xaver Von Schönwerth.”

Brendon is a member of The Dramatists Guild of America, and served as Young Ambassador for the New Jersey Region from 2014-2016.

I invite you to read several of my plays on the new play exchange, now including
