    A kind, hilarious, and thoughtful examination of the price we all have to pay to be ourselves. The Monster Girls at the center of the play are wonderful roles for young actors. Silly and sincere in equal measure. You won't find a play with a bigger heart.

    What would be the clickbait headline that would get you to download and read this play? YOU'LL NEVER LOOK AT THE INTERNET THE SAME AFTER READING THIS PLAY! SHE WRITES HEADLINES AND NO ONE READS THE ARTICLES; YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! TEN LIES YOU'LL BELIEVE IF YOU STAY ON THE INTERNET LONG ENOUGH! HOW TO STAY ANONYMOUS IN PUBLIC!

    The Outrage Machine is a finely tuned and deeply contemporary play. But don't just listen to my headlines. Read the thing.

    A monologue of fire and sadness, in turns hilarious and haunting. Well worth your read and worth asking yourself the questions posed here. How do we want to be remembered - with all our edges sanded to oblivion or faithfully?

    It's the kind of play that can change your life as an actor. It's tender, hilarious, and heartbreaking. It's eminently producible. I can't recommend it highly enough. I love this play and your audiences will too.

    A lovely, deeply personal experience. I say experience, because it would be impossible to separate the words on the page from the smells and sounds made while the story is constructed in front of you. While reading, I could smell the break baking. What a delight.
  • Tall Tales

    Horror is so hard to pull off, but TALL TALES is legitimately scary - The Elder offering many opportunities for a movement based monster that reaches out to the make the audience's lizard brain scream, "THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG HERE." The mood of the piece grabs you by the throat. The characters are interesting and varied, the setting oppressive. Really worth your time. Give it a read.

    This play is a direct window into grief. It drips off the page. But not just the bitterness of grief. Also the recovery and rebirth. It's a lovely testament to those we've all lost.

    Brutal. Unrelenting. Uncompromising. Magical.

    I read this play in one quick sitting. Couldn't put it down. It's a very difficult show to describe (and you should certainly take the "grotesque" tag to heart, because it's a hard read on occasion.) but it's a lovely trip into a world of possibilities, only to be ripped out by the jealousy, pain, and judgement of others.

    But, yes. Read it. Absolutely read it.
