Past full-length play workshops and readings include Pro-Am (Sideshow Theater's The Freshness Initiative; also included on the Kilroys List 2020),The Young Ones (First Floor Theater), Synchronicity (Salt Lake Acting Company; also chosen as a 2018 semi-finalist for the O’Neill Center’s National Playwrights Conference), Age Play (The New Coordinates), Pizza Hut Heartbreaker (Commission Theatre Company), and Shitty Christians at Prop Thtr's Church of the New Play.

Brynne's short plays have been produced by Broken Nose Theatre, MadLab, American Blues Theater, and the Chicago One-Minute Play Festival. As a script supervisor and director's assistant, she has worked on world premieres at Rivendell Theatre Ensemble and Chicago Dramatists.

Currently, Brynne is looking forward to the world premiere of 

Pro-Am at Sideshow Theater, developing the full-length Believers for Broken Nose Theater's The Paper Trail, and revising a draft called Faculty (or, The Opposite of Oleanna).
