Candace's monologue "Supernova" was accepted into Luna Stage's New Moon Short Play Festival and will be performed on Monday, May 12 at 7:30 p.m. The Festival will be held over two evenings (May 12 & 13) with a different lineup of plays each night. Each evening will culminate with a talkback with the playwrights.
"Supernova" is a monologue about spontaneous human combustion, raging hormones and the practical application of astrophysics in daily life. It will be directed by Sarah Hankins and performed by Amanda Barron (see more about these fabulously talented ladies by clicking on their names).

On April 16, Candace had the delight of performing in No, YOU Tell It! - a switched up story telling series. The theme of the night was FEAR ITSELF, but there were equal parts inspiration and wicked humor along with the fright.
Here is Candace Clift honoring Jeanine T. Abraham's stunning story "Fear and Faith."
And here is Jeanine T. Abraham's awesome telling of Candace Clift's lovely story "Sliding Doors."
No, YOU Tell It! is a reading series that switches up the storytelling. Each performer writes a true-life tale, then trades with a partner to present each other’s story.
The NYTI creative team, Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons, Mike Dressel and Erika Iverson, works with a group of four storytellers as they workshop pieces based around a theme. Switching the stories gives all involved the opportunity to both develop their own story on the page and then watch as it’s performed in front of an audience by their partner.

No, YOU Tell It - Fear Itself
Candace is excited to perform in a unique storytelling event on Wednesday, April 16 at 7 p.m. No, YOU Tell It is a reading series that switches up the storytelling. Each NYTI performer writes a true-life tale and then trades with a partner to present each other’s story. This month's theme is "Fear Itself," and the writers have been facing down their fears and honing their tales for several weeks. Join us at jimmy's no. 43 (43 East 7th St.) for a night of stories about overcoming, accepting, and fighting fear with produce.
