Her movie, The Marriage Penalty, was optioned by television director, Gary Shimokawa.

Judith has performed a revised version of her L.A. Times published piece, The Rules of Dating at a Certain Age, at The Jersey Girls Production of  "The Vintage Show - Women Who Get Better with Age."  This was Ms. Allen's first stage appearance since 19...., when she played Estelle in Jean Paul Sartre's No Exit to a captive (literally) audience at a high security Army Base in what was then West Germany.

Judith's writing reflects her wry sense of humor. 

After losing most of her hearing at a rock concert (the group was Kansas), and one of those ugly divorces, Judith turned to writing as a means of keeping her sanity.  She owes much to Sister Felice Kolda and her original writing group friends, whom she met at a workshop in 1989, for nagging her to continue to write.   Then there's her weekly Monday morning breakfasts with fellow ALAP member, Ann L. Gibbs, to keep her motivated.

Judith is a member of Theatre West, At Rise: Playwrights and the Dramatists Guild.
