Plays

  • Riot and Dishonor
    Embark on a journey of self indulgence, cocksure poetry and collateral damage as Jack Falstaff (age 15) slams into adolescence. Drinking, fights, mistaken identity and the Peasant's Revolt of 1381 rage across a backdrop of wayward wenches and reprobates. All the bumps and bruises of youth are here delivered in iambic pentameter at punk rock speed
  • An Evening with Valentine and Bratherford
    After retiring from a party, Bratherford confesses to Valentine that he has been rejected by his lover and told that there is somebody else. Maligned, the two English lords read off the names of every bachelor on the guest list and proceed to dish about them in order to discover who has taken Bratherford's place. It is all done between giggling, double entendre and brandy

Recommended by Luke Brett

  • The Witches
    30 Mar. 2020
    Not only is "The Witches," a compelling, contemporary story told with natural dialogue, but it also has genuine moments of terror. From its humor to its history to its difficult but poignant intergenerational dialogue, the script uses its four actors to create magic.
  • Lombardo
    31 Dec. 2019
    Lombardo, in ten pages, finds a way to be ABOUT the holiday of New Year's Eve while still being funny and giving actors a wonderful playground to run in. A fun, quick party of a script.
  • No Cure For Cancer
    24 Jun. 2018
    The script does so much in so little time. It is eventful, electric and its conversation feels more like overheard reality than written drama. And what you hear literally makes you want to hide.
