Marnie's play, Crack Whore, Bulimic, Girl-Next-Door received a GO! by LA Weekly in 2006 and was taught in a Play Structure and Analysis class at the University of Washington in 2007. This play was produced again in 2009, and led Marnie to speak publicly at an outreach event for people with eating disorders. In 2018, it was produced at The Belfry Stage in North Hollywod and is now at Hollywood Fringe Festival 2019.
