Plays

  • What's in Store
    FULL-LENGTH: Discouraged by her recent futile apartment search and the equally futile state of the world, Jaycee finds solace in the clean lines and pre-fab layouts at DUKTIG, her local Swedish furniture store. So she moves in. When others follow her lead, will she be discovered or start a revolution? A heart-warming and unconventional take on the places we call home, and the parts of ourselves we are willing to sacrifice to live there.
  • Inbox: Empty or Airport: Scanning
    10-MINUTE: Girl meets boy. At a gym. As their thoughts manifest in IM conversations over their shoulders, their wavelengths scramble, and they accidentally say what they mean. A comedic and touching piece about risking vulnerability and the terror of making new friends after 30.
  • Enabler
    10 MINUTE: It's about 3AM and five professionals are on the 86th take for the Enabler commercial. Enabler is a drug that treats envy-induced depression. It's side effects include "the inability to determine right from wrong," "mania," and "spontaneous combustion." Oh yeah, and everyone is on it. A short dark comedy on the side effects of the quick fix prescription.
  • Libby Griscom's Colonial School Report
    10-MINUTE YA: A reluctant student, Libby is last to present her school report on Colonial Times. Her procrastination is so effective, in fact, that she actually accidentally travels back to Colonial Times. An informative and quirky romp through history inspired by Betsy Ross.
