The Pressure Players announced the director of the piece that will win their first in a global radio contest in January, the winner of which will be announced before the end of this month.

"In our initial meeting, I could feel great energy from her. I can see that energy being exactly what we need for this piece, for the company in general, honestly," said Executive Director Samantha Castro.

She is interested in direction, which illustrates the power and beauty of the human experience.
