    What a fun story! This older couple talk to each other with the kind of banter that decades together brings. And the husband’s refusal to accept that he can no longer do things makes for a fun situation all around. A great festival piece that will leave the audience smiling.

    This play is a tightly woven tale of that tension that arises when you are leaving a job and your fellow workers realize what they stand to lose. Add the tension of a fireworks display mixing with new discoveries going off like bombshells, this story sweeps us up and delivers with all the drama a good story can have. A great ensemble piece.
  • THE EQUIVALENT OF SENSATION, full-length play for 5 Women
    8 Dec. 2020
    Equivalent of Sensation introduces us to Etta and Claribel Cone, and their complicated lifelong friendship, Etta’s attraction to, and competition with Gertrude Stein and her lover Alice B Toklas. The play is a beautifully woven tapestry of ghosts recounting lesbian attraction and rejection, prompted by the art collection donated and newly installed in its own special wing of the Baltimore Museum of Art. Do the colorful people in Etta’s life truly outshine her, or through missed opportunity, do they never truly realize her own deep spender? A fantastic ensemble piece. Every character is written to make them shine.

  • Compelled
    18 Nov. 2020
    Helleson’s play is well named. It is a compelling no holes barred look at the inequity of theatre, towards women, through women, highlighting their struggles as writers, and in seats of power, and the compromises they make to be in the room. It is a roller coaster ride. Read it. Produce it.

    What a wonderful and engaging play. This is a story of discovery, not just of fossils, and a historical figure, but of persistence and drive. A great piece to show young audiences that girls matter, that young people can do important work, and following your heart’s desire to discover and learn are possible and worthwhile.
