Plays

  • The Portable Casey Horn
    A dark coming-of-age story about a young boy who's challenged by a sickly Star Wars obsessed younger brother, a girl next door who won't give him the time of day, and a mother with a Holly Golightly psychosis who, much to Casey's chagrin, has a habit of always falling in love with Mr. Wrong.
  • Bullet for Unaccompanied Heart
    A blues guitarist, Dugan McBane, gets taken hostage by the ghost of his former lover, Anya Magnifico, a crossword puzzle-obsessed punk rock princess who’s aided by her henchman, Milo. Dugan’s release hinges on one thing: a sincere apology.
  • Ocean View Odyssey

  • All is Always Now

  • Savage Variations
