Julie Marino

Julie and I decided to create a small, adventurous site with two principle aims: to promote Welcome to Paradise, her new play presented in New York in July 2015, and to showcase her character sketches, stories and plays-in-the-making in The Writing Desk. For Welcome to Paradise we’ve used big stretched backgrounds to lend atmosphere; The Writing Desk features fancy CSS for story layouts and typography.

Welcome to Paradise

A play about time, trust, love and acceptance.

St. Sebastian is a sleepy little Caribbean island catering to bland suburban honeymooners and sedate folks whose wild party days are well behind them.

But unexpected and life-changing encounters can happen, even in this unlikeliest of places.

Welcome to Paradise, a play by Julie Marino, had it’s premier as part of the 2015 Thespis Theater Festival here in Manhattan.

Visit Paradise and The Writing Desk
