JAVELINA

Weeks into the filming of her first indie feature film, Ali (the writer) arrives on set in rural Texas and learns that a deer was killed because she wrote it into the script. And the killing has only just begun. A play, loosely based on reality, about moral culpability, death, movies, the souls of all living things, and how easy it is to decide that nothing means anything.

    The community of national & local readers for the Bay Area Playwrights Festival in 2022 enthusiastically recommends JAVELINA as a Semi-Finalist at Playwrights Foundation. We were deeply moved by this play's exploration of the intersections of art, violence, toxic masculinity, and morality. We were compelled by this play's promise in the use of theatrical horror devices and imagery. We hope this play is widely read, finds dedicated collaborators, and moves swiftly towards production. #BAPF2022

    A fascinating, enormously relevant play that seamlessly takes us on a journey from the real to the unreal and back again with inventive theatrical devices. Roblan brings in so many themes and interweaves them in a way that feels effortless and cohesive. An achievement that begs to be realized on stage.

    A fantastic look into ourselves and our moral responsibilities regarding others as we work through it all. A fun exploration with great imagery. Well done.
