She garnered a Tony nomination for her work in Arthur Kopit's "End of the World” and won Obie Awards for roles in Caryl Churchill's "Top Girls” and "A Metamorphosis In Miniature,” based on the Kafka novel. Her other notable stage work includes the title role "Mother Courage and Her Children,” "Aunt Dan & Lemon,” where she originated the role of ‘Aunt Dan' in London and New York, and "The Cherry Orchard,” directed by Peter Brook.
