    Are these women bitches to each other? Absolutely. Did I laugh out loud at their biting and witty stand-offs? Also absolutely. These characters are messy, complicated, and real, which is where the true success of this script lies.
  • Marie Antionette and the Magical Negros

    I was able to catch The Story Theater's production in Chicago, and I was captivated the entire time. Guest weaves together multiple points in history (mainly the present and the French Revolution) to ask big questions about revolution, activism, and complicity (to name a few things). At the same time he keeps it fast-paced, entertaining, and highly theatrical. Definitely recommend!

    This has got it all - camp, coming of age, and a Jewish demon vampire. I would be willing to spend more time on this story and with these characters for sure!

    On the surface, we have a benign conversation about food. But right underneath is an unsettling exploration of boundaries and the power dynamic between parent and child.
  • An Apéritif [a 1-minute play]

    A perfect example of a one minute play - clear characters and story arc, and even a little bit of dark comedy.
  • Simulacrum (10 minute/ten minute play)

    An interesting exploration of what the nature of reality truly is, and my personal favorite part is that Wolfe doesn't give a clear cut answer, but leaves it for the audience to decide.
