  • The Wooden Heart
    23 Sep. 2019
    We had the joy and privilege of producing a workshop production in September of 2019. Our audiences loved every moment. Part fairy tale, part comedy, and all heart, this show had many of our patrons thanking us for giving them a welcomed escape. Adam has written a show that is appropriate for all ages and one that has message that people need to hear. We can't recommend the show enough!
  • The Insidious Impact of Anton
    6 Jun. 2019
    This fast paced, laugh a minute, smart comedy with a big heart will keep your audiences on the edge of their seat and wanting more. Surprises abound as does wit and charm. It is a beautiful opportunity for a strong female lead that can drive a show. David is a pleasure to produce and we look forward to our next collaboration with him.
  • Drown
    6 Jun. 2019
    We had the pleasure of producing a workshop of this show in 2015 and, in the process, working with David directly. Both were extraordinary experiences. This is an important play that deals with grief and growth in surprising and beautiful ways. Our audiences were hooked from start to finish and, four years later, are still talking about it.
  • Bad in Bed (A Fairy Tale)
    14 Mar. 2018
    We had the pleasure of producing the first developmental production of Bad In Bed this past February. This charming comedy with a twist won our audiences over within the first few moments and they were not disappointed throughout. With wonderful characters, great roles for women, and an underlying message of female empowerment, this was a great way to start off our season. And the playwright is more than happy to provide a pronunciation guide when it comes to the Finnish! If you are looking for a fun romantic comedy that has a fantastic message, grab this show!
  • Anatomy of a Hug
    24 Jul. 2017
    Funny, heartbreaking, and filled with characters that will make you feel a little less terrible about your own flaws, Anatomy elicited so many emotions from our audiences, we could barely keep up! A year later, we still have audiences talking it and how beautifully written it is. Kat has gained a ton of fans here in Louisiana because of this show. Kat has a unique way with words and there is power in every word she puts on the page. Anatomy of a Hug is no exception.
