    A cringe-worthy piece that kept me on the edge of my seat. With smart use of projection, complicated arguments and clear dynamic conflict - this piece will leave an audience with something to debate and think about. A 140-character eulogy for an entire life. I'm still cringing-- in the best possible way!

    A hilarious farcical plunge in the secretarial pool with dynamic roles that have been yet to be written for actresses. Like if FAT CAT KILLERS were written for women. Thank you, Danley, for writing this brilliant, smart and deliciously dark comedy. Young physical comediennes everywhere, rejoice!

    A truly unconventional fairytale for adults with a clear tone and comedic voice. As four women languish in a castle feasting on skittles, they start to wonder what they are waiting for. A piece that has potential to be very funny with the right creative team. Smart and self-aware.

    Set in a world of genetic pre-screening, stork mind-hacking and the safety that comes with playing God, Goldfinger conceives of a unique, unsettling world that seems terrifyingly plausible while also raising discussion-worthy questions. Because in a world that demands genetic perfection, would you have been born?

    A sad little gem set in Logan airport that's about missing much more than flights. Starts a bit offbeat and darkens. Well-written and thematically airtight.
