Plays

  • I Name You
    Following a disastrous party and sexual assault, Sophia and Angela have kidnapped a frat boy to get every bit of revenge they could ever dream of, and build the most realistic voodoo doll their teenage dreams have ever seen. When emotions run high, unexpected information is revealed, and the torture begins, their basement turns into a special kind of hell, with each different demon grappling for control.
  • Victory, or #DanceCompLife
    There's a dance competition this week. Someone has to win Mr. Talent Works. A student with a laser focus and brutal back spasms finds himself in the hotel room of a teacher from a different dance studio with skilled, wandering hands. In this dance-off, there's more to lose than a crown and a gift certificate.
  • Chemical Dependencies
    Through the aftermath of 9/11 and their band’s unexpected success, brothers Simon and Johnny struggle with addiction. With fame and depression, alcohol is not the only vice they must overcome, and they eventually find that their relationship might be the most dangerous dependency of all.
  • Bulletproof
    P.J. needs a bulletproof idea to save his job. He may have taken this too literally.
  • After Hours
    After Hours is about to make their big break by making a song with the marginally more popular band The Intimates. Then the lyricist of After Hours catches the frontman of The Intimates committing a crime—at least, he thinks so. He has one beer-fueled night to figure out if the possible crime is enough to throw away their shot.
