Her writing has appeared in Hoochie, BU’s feminist mag, and her plays in Boston University’s 20/21 Season, and Reground Theatre Festival in Boston. Roach will soon be published in Lindsay Clowes and Nadia Sanger’s collection Living African Feminist Theory (2021) on Afrocentrism and performance. She was last seen in SCHOOL GIRLS; or, the African Mean Girls Play (SpeakEasy Stage Company) and Laughs in Spanish (Boston Playwrights’ Theatre).
