Plays

  • Dirty Old Town
    Johnny, the somewhat ethereal, alcoholic narrator, tells the audience about summer in a small college town. Through broken poetry, Johnny takes the audience through the town's bars, moving day at apartment complexes, and of course the hustle and bustle of Orientation day.
  • Friendless Godless
    A computer, an apartment, and life's many absurdities. Luki is alone in a tiny apartment. He spends the day looking for things he can't find, pranking scam callers, and generally shutting himself away from the outside world. Friendless Godless touches upon how humans interact with the world when they are completely alone, and the rest of the play is downright silliness.
  • Thanks Steve
    A comedy short about life after a breakup. Jimmy recently was dumped by longtime his girlfriend, Candice, and has become cocooned in a week long depressive state. Lucky for him, his friend Steve is there to cheer him up with beer, Chinese food, singing, and heartfelt advice. Then, Candice decides to drop in.
