Beth May is all about the show and tell.

When she's not making revisions to screenplays -- she's currently in the middle of a story involving a man who writes eulogies for a living -- or driving across the desert for a chance to compete in poetry slams, the Tucson-raised playwright and Arizona State University grad can often be found performing her written works on Phoenix's more progressive stages, making her mark at venues like Space 55 and Lawn Gnome Publishing.
