But while sharing stories of his past that included drugs, homosexuality, and an arrogant lifestyle, Jacob's own life as a married father seems to have more turmoil than peace. Told in a non-linear way, Well With My Soul captures two lifetimes battling within one soul.
  • Hiding in Daylight
    In a dystopian future, two couples come together to remember life before the gay purge and must decide if they can continue the risk of a weekly dinner together. This one act play runs under an hour and is very topical in today's political climate. If you enjoy The Handmaid's Tale or 1984, this play speaks to the LGBT community in that same way of how things in that world could change very quickly.
