This solo performance play began as a class assignment for Tracy’s Dramatic Writing MFA program at Carnegie Mellon University. It was credited as a play that students “remembered from last year.” When asked if this play was inspired by Tracy’s life, she replied, “I mean, the protagonist’s name is Kelly and mine is Tracy, so obviously it’s not about me. Also, I was 35 when I started dating again and this character is like 30.”

Tracy Held Potter (Writer) Despite installing Tinder on her phone the semester before her program ended, Tracy did receive her MFA and has had work produced across the country by All Terrain Theater, Pittsburgh Opera Theater, Bay One-Acts Festival, and the SF Playwrights Foundation. In 2013, she won Best of Fringe for co-writing “Babies, the Ultimate Birth Control: Terrifyingly Hilarious Plays about Parenting” with Rachel Bublitz at SF Fringe as well as Audience Choice Awards for her short plays “A Mother’s Seduction” and “Princess Audrey” with Monday Night PlayGround. Like any single mom writer moving to LA, she’s also developing a web series, writing screenplays (she won an Alfred P. Sloan Screenwriting Award for “Science Fair the Musical”), and trying to get into television.

Katherine Vondy (Director) is a Los Angeles-based writer and director whose work spans film, theater and literature.  She begins her All Terrain Theater debut by directing “Suddenly Split and Swiping Over” by Tracy Held Potter for Hollywood Fringe. “The Fermi Paradox,” her full-length play, is the recipient of the 2015 Davey Foundation Theatre Grant, and her award-winning short film, “The Broken Heart of Gnocchi Bolognese,” has played at festivals worldwide. Recent projects include collaborations with noted LA musical comedy sketch group Lost Moon Radio and educational video company CreatorUp. The recipient of residencies from the HBMG Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, Starry Night and Wildacres, Katherine’s work has also appeared in many literary magazines and journals. She received a BA in English and Music from Amherst College as well as an MFA in Film and Television Production from the University of Southern California.

Susan-Kate Heaney (Actor) is a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts (BFA in Drama) and a recent transplant to Los Angeles. This is Susan-Kate’s first production with All Terrain Theater. Recent credits include Shirley in Masters of Sex, Linda in Pant Suits (with Bryce Dallas Howard) and her comedy web series Top Mop (Funny or Die). Her latest solo show Facebook with Mom has been running at Second City. Susan-Kate performs improv and sketch (Groundlings, Second City, The Comedy Central Stage) and stand-up. She is repped by Talentworks, Robyn Bluestone Management, and Peikoff Mahan Legal. susan-kate.com

Angela Jaymes (Actor/Understudy) is STOKED to be making her professional west coast theatre debut with All Terrain Theater.
