Plays

  • Nosferatu, The Vampyr: A Palimpsest
    A kaleidoscope of all the things that scare us about vampires, told with drama, song, film, riddle, and lip-sync. Newlywed queers Harker and Will are divided when Harker is sent to sell a house to the eccentric old Count Orlok. A story for those who fear that pleasure will lead to plague.
  • The Interrobangers
    Four groovy teens and a dog search the woods in their van to solve a mystery while exploring drugs, queerness, and the fear that men in rubber masks are scarier than monsters. The four question the world they know, looking into the parts of their history they would rather avoid.

    A penny dreadful epic exploring queer shame, gender dysphoria, mental illness, cannibalism, loneliness, mermaid migration patterns, anal sex, the rise of cinema over vaudeville, werewolves, biology, masculinity, femininity, exhaustion, confetti cake, issues of literacy, memory, and death. Ghoul Hammond is a creature born in a castle laboratory, sewn together from 13 corpses and powered by a radio transmission...
    A penny dreadful epic exploring queer shame, gender dysphoria, mental illness, cannibalism, loneliness, mermaid migration patterns, anal sex, the rise of cinema over vaudeville, werewolves, biology, masculinity, femininity, exhaustion, confetti cake, issues of literacy, memory, and death. Ghoul Hammond is a creature born in a castle laboratory, sewn together from 13 corpses and powered by a radio transmission from the void by one Dr. Bartimouse Hammond. We follow Ghoul as it consumes it's creator and goes on to become an international star of stage and screen until it ultimately directs a musical adaptation of it's own life, casting as each other the circle of fiends who surrounded Doctor Hammond while he built Ghoul.
  • All Is In Wonder
    An adaptation of Alice In Wonderland through the lens of a transgender girl determined to make sense of an ever-changing world that refuses to afford her body any kind of comfort. Based on the relationship between Alice and the unnamed sister she leaves behind, this is a contemporary reflection of the classic nonsense fable.
  • When they came from, It’s the Wrath of the Swampy THING, from the Pond, it just Jumped Out Of Nowhere, then, and it, and attacked aLIENS?!?!
    It's a sunny day in Fairford Pond, USA, and the community has rallied for a picnic concert when local ingenue Joyce comes warning that ze has been attacked by a Swamp Monster. Following in quick succession are alien invaders, an army of zombies, and a haywire Mayoral campaign. How will the day be saved?
  • The Necromancy Follies!
    At a midnight meeting, a team of 1930's artists conduct a seance to ensure the opening night of their new show goes well in the face of a disruptive ghost.
