Plays

  • Bloom Bloom Pow
    Who will inherit the Earth when Humans have self-destructed? Algae, that's who. As our human protagonist Mag struggles to maintain the facade of being "fine," the cyanobacteria (Algae) grows bigger and stronger each day. Straddling the line between humor and suspense, BLOOM BLOOM POW explores what it means to be alive in the face of impending climate doom.
  • Guarding
    It’s the hottest day of the summer and nine teenage lifeguards are stuck at work. Their pool is getting shut down at the end of the season, and everyone’s a little freaked out about what comes next. Relationships get tested. Nostalgia butts up against bodily fluids. And everyone tries to figure out who was behind The Bad Thing That Happened.

    It’s the hottest day of the summer and nine teenage lifeguards are stuck at work. Their pool is getting shut down at the end of the season, and everyone’s a little freaked out about what comes next. Relationships get tested. Nostalgia butts up against bodily fluids. And everyone tries to figure out who was behind The Bad Thing That Happened.

    Guarding honors the thankless task of keeping swimmers alive, and the people you come of age with—whether you want to or not.
  • SISTER/FRIEND
    While their parents party upstairs Like It’s 1999, five young girls count down to Y2K and wonder what The End Of The World will look like from their basement. Childhood games unravel the truths their parents won’t tell them, and each must decide what they owe to the people they call family.

    An homage to the girls who raised us when our parents weren't watching.
  • Delivery
    Three women in three very different landscapes grapple with the importance of delivering a message.

    1. A meeting of three historical figures
    2. An apartment complex in Southern California, and
    3. Inside the digital landscape of customer service emails (set to music)

    Three women in three very different landscapes grapple with the importance of delivering a message.

    1. A meeting of three historical figures
    2. An apartment complex in Southern California, and
    3. Inside the digital landscape of customer service emails (set to music)

    The play moves laterally, generating momentum as symbols move through the three worlds – a letter, a plastic yard animal, and a yellow Frisbee taking on a mounting significance. Where do things go when they are lost? And when do they come back?
