Plays

  • PANDORA SHAKES THINGS UP: A Play Inverse
    A Greek myth re-written in verse, inverse, and set in an abstinence-only high school.
  • CIRQUE DU DISMAY: A Fairly Short Play
    A mime, a clown, and a person who hasn't figured out their "thing" yet are faced with a big decision when the city bans street performance.
  • ADULTS
    Middle-aged sisters navigate feelings, friendship, and funeral logistics in the wake of their mother's death. Was it my fault? Who are you supposed to call when someone dies? Are you wearing my shirt again?!
  • A PLAY WHERE NOTHING HAPPENS
    The summer before leaving for college, Anna and best friend Maura's lives are notoriously void of the iconic adventures they think they should be having. Under a veneer of teenage chatter, they writhe with the existential crises of humans hungry to experience life but still tethered to home and each other.
  • AND EAT IT TOO
    As Lily Lopez prepares to compete in the County Fair pie-eating contest, an unexpected rendez-vous forces her to face her anxieties, (potentially eating too many pies in the process).
  • STRANGE NEW PLANET: A Live Book-On-Tape
    An trunk falls into a Walmart parking-lot. An alien emerges. What do you do when you don't know the rules? How can a creature learn to live on this strange new planet?
  • WAYWARD HOME: A Musical Folktale
    In this epic retelling of the Noah's Ark story, three storytellers untangle an tale of love and loss, and ask "How do you keep going when the world turns upside down?"
