Plays

  • Crossings
    Fifty-two years after taking the SI ferry and making her way to Shea Stadium to see the Beatles, Gramma Lily is taking her reluctant granddaughter Kyla on the older woman’s “Yesterday Tour” to see Paul McCartney; and the tour begins with the same ferry boat ride. Lily soon realizes it’s more important that Kyla have her own adventure than to try and relive her grandmother’s. But is it too late for Lily to make new memories?
  • Reunion
    Siblings Matthew and Marilla find their farm life interrupted unexpectedly one evening when Izzy’s car “breaks down” in front of their dairy farm. It soon becomes apparent to them that this is more than a chance meeting. It is a meeting Izzy planned; one that could change all their lives. It will make Marilla and Matthew question themselves and give Izzy answers. But are they truthful answers, or just the “right” ones?
  • Last Night at the Arcade
    Convinced he has a way to save a run-down arcade from closing, Kid unexpectedly encounters the owner at the closed arcade, who also has reasons for visiting the arcade one last time. When the owner’s son appears, the three explore their less than perfect relationships with their fathers or sons, with Kid coming to an understanding that every father is also a son.
  • Cicadas
    LOGLINE: Amidst a blistering heat wave and a cicada outbreak, 63 year old Maggie Rivers returns after fifty years to her tiny home in equally tiny Cedar Bluff, Missouri, on the eve of its manmade flooding.
