AMERICAN DREAM at Rorschach Theatre
April 1st, 2023
I am so excited to be playing ANN PUTNAM JR in a reading of Trish Cole's new play American Dream - trust me, this is going to be a wild one!
"Five high school cheerleaders attempt to navigate purity and over-sexualization as Adam and Eve revisit their origin story and Joan of Arc battles not only the English, but the high school principal, gender roles, and rape culture. At the intersection of these stories is an intergalactic prophet, traversing time and space who reveals the connections among generations of women, including the women in her own family who left Odessa for America in hopes of finding their own Garden of Paradise…or, the American Dream."

As of February of 2023, I'm working with The Nudge to make short video plans of cool things to do around DC! I'm still working on my first plan, but in addition to uploading them to The Nudge app, I'll share each plan to my (brand new!) TikTok account (@racheldjohns99)
