Plays

  • Holy Virgins (one-act version)
    Sam, Marina and Lenny bail on Confirmation class after a Satanic prank gone awry. A sweet-sour snapshot of Kentucky Catholic girlhood with burgeoning queerness, white friends, and a bit of magic.
  • Ribs
    “Did you know spinster age is 22?” 21-year-old Liha asks her 21-year-old roommates. A sort-of sex comedy in an accidental virgin vault, Ribs explores femininity, sexuality, and privilege from the strange, funny, vulgar confines of a Bloomington, Indiana student rental—and the highs and horrors of being a woman at a state university.
  • first love / late spring
    They meet in autumn, fall in winter, and leave in spring. A selfish millennial pandemic non-breakup play.
