  • 10:00 Min - CULTURALLY APPROPRIATE INSURRECTION
    22 Apr. 2022
    A short political piece with a strong punch!
  • Backyard/Blues
    28 Mar. 2022
    Nick Baker interrogates what it means to be successful in America, and why we hold onto memories of a past that never existed in this timely, hard hitting family drama.
  • The Droll {Or, a Stage-Play about the END of Theatre}
    3 Feb. 2022
    The Droll is an incredibly strong play that does so much more than speak to our present moment and present needs. Miroshnik poses thoughtful questions as to the nature of theatre, and the nature of apocalypses, grounded in the story of those who survived the end of their world. It's an engaging and thoughtful narrative with the heart that truly great plays require.
  • Happy Days: Zoom (A parody of the absurd)
    28 Jan. 2022
    A clever riff on Beckett that highlights the absurdities of pandemic life.
  • Owning Shakespeare (Ten Minute Play)
    4 Sep. 2021
    This short play is a charming exploration of the dark places that obsession can take us to, neatly juxtaposing the sacred with the secular. It's also a nice apéritif for any Shakespeare-focused theatre looking to include new plays in their programming.
  • Perihelion
    27 Aug. 2021
    A compelling story about trying to find meaning in a chaotic universe.
  • Green Sound
    2 Jul. 2021
    This is a great script that explores non-neurotypical ways of perceiving the world, all via a touching romance. I directed a production of "Green Sound" a few years ago, and it remains one of my favorite short plays.
  • THE AGE OF ROMANCE
    28 Jun. 2021
    This is a touching and engaging comedy for mature actors that explores the ways we continually grow throughout our lives.
  • Black Cat
    9 Jun. 2021
    It was nice to read a play about science that takes both the scientific method and the business of science seriously, and examines how they can be in conflict with each other, and with the passion for discovery that inspires a career in science.
  • Bonesetter: a Tragislasher
    30 Aug. 2020
    I enjoyed the way Storckman synthesizes Jacobean revenge tragedy with the slasher films of the 1970s and 80s in a feminist and sex positive way that interrogates our moral assumptions about the nature of forgiveness, justice, and vengeance. Storckman is a philosophical writer, and says a great deal in "Bonesetter," so there's a lot to reflect on later. Her fast pace and use of blood for ink keeps you entertained in the moment.
