Plays

  • Such a Pretty Face
    A heartfelt, belly-laugh-inducing look at body image, relationships, and self via traditional dialogue and slam poetry. Holly is kept on her toes by painfully honest best friends and a well-meaning boyfriend as she tackles life, love, and lust as a fat woman. In a world that wants us to downsize in just about every way, Such A Pretty Face is the fat anthem we have all been weighting for.
  • DIS/CONNECT - a 10 minute play
    A "no strings attached" personals ad brings Andy and Robyn together. After an evening of anonymous sex, the pair realizes there is no reason to keep secrets from complete strangers. One is hiding their past, the other is hiding their future. The truth doesn't always set you free.
  • Ghosts Like Us
    Ghosts Like Us is a collection of eerie and haunting tales based on Kentucky folklore. Each scene takes a well known story, handed down by generations of Kentuckians, and retells it from new and unknown perspectives. Ghosts Like Us covers the cursed witches tree in downtown Louisville, a twist on the Waverly Hills Sanatorium, a retelling of the infamous Goatman, and many more.
  • Aunt T's Resting Place
    A road-tripping couple with a flair for adventure wander into a diner somewhere in backwoods Kentucky to ask for directions. The old lady who owns the place offers advice, a hot meal, and the tale of a local urban legend that they can't quite shake..... Based on the the Pope Lick Monster/Goatman folklore that has been passed down in Kentucky for generations.
