The Bard's little-seen comedy, All's Well That Ends Well!
8 actors portray 27 characters! This wonky romp is a fairytale romance-with a twist-and everything you’d expect may go off the rails in every way imaginable.

This January I filmed "Attractive" as part of The Wonderment Project!

Here is what my director and writer Bryan Dembinski had to say-
"Maya, who is the girl in the piece, was really amazing to work with. She brought a lot of specific characterizations that really fleshed out the script to bring it all alive. Thanks Maya."
