Plays

  • The Kookaburra (A Hero's Journey?)
    Two hapless friends embark on what might be called a 'quest' to deliver beans to some kind of Queen out in Phoenix, Arizona, which would already be weird enough if they didn't also have to deal with an obnoxious talking bird known simply as The Kookaburra.
  • The Devil, the Witch, and the Blacksmith
    A lovelorn blacksmith makes a deal with the Devil to help him woo the most conceited girl in his gossipy village.
  • Turtleback High

  • Two~Step

  • Allen Wrench
    Defeated grocery store clerk, Allen, must choose between defending his pathetic life or allowing his coworkers to unleash the horrifying space monster that's trapped inside the walk-in freezer.

    It was produced in the Spring of 2017 (we had been expecting the first woman president!) thanks, in part, to support from the Susan B. Anthony House in Rochester, NY and Humanities NY.
