Before receiving her MFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Rachael wrote an original screenplay for the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC), a Nobel Prize nominated organization that funded her year-long stay and film in Cape Town, South Africa. Her play,Dead Fish, had a successful run at HERE Arts in Soho.
