Her solo play, Free Desiree, was named by Indie Theater Now as one of the Best New Plays of the New York Fringe. Her play, Don’t Call it a Riot, which explores Seattle activism from the Black Panther Party to the WTO protests, was a finalist in the 2017 Bay Area Playwrights’ Festival, and had its world premiere in Seattle in 2018. Her filmed play, When a Tree Falls, was screened at SIFF Theater in 2022. Most recently, Amontaine was commissioned to adapt a play for Free Soil Arts Collective in Massachusetts.
