    Wow. Rachel has crafted a piece that's accessible, moving, fast-paced, and incredibly relevant to this moment in time. Black Mexican is a play creating space for necessary questions and necessary voices.

    Shannon's work is deeply resilient and I'm ready for more. His work resonates and strikes a chord I didn't know I needed struck. This is a play that will keep conversation in motion long after its curtain. I had the pleasure of getting to know Shannon and his work at the 2019 LAMBDA literary conference. I feel a powerful combination of relief and excitement knowing that Shannon is creating work in our industry. Get him in the room.

    John's work is hilarious, and builds slowly in a way that takes the audience by surprise. This play is so funny and poignant. I had the pleasure of getting to know John and his work at the 2019 LAMBDA literary conference, and John is absolutely someone you want in the room. Beautiful work, beautiful person.

    Beautiful work. Andrew builds worlds in an almost dreamlike way but still allows them the gravity and importance they demand. Urgent, immediate work with puppetry that calls for a wonderful theatricality. I had the pleasure of getting to know Andrew and his work at the 2019 LAMBDA literary conference. Andrew has a silent creativity continuously cooking and I can't wait to see where his work leads. Andrew writes plays I want to see onstage NOW.

    A beautiful meal of a play. I saw this at Chester Theatre and was completely drawn in.

    Fantastic. I love Meghan's work, this play is electric. I could watch this play and read this play over and over but PRODUCE this play because it's beautiful and heart-wrenching and urgent and important. Produce this play.

    This is a play that offers so much to an audience: it's topical and leaves the audience with no easy answer but instead, opens the door for necessary conversation. I'm so glad I got to see the production at TheaterWorks here in Connecticut. What a fantastic new play.
  • Sitting Causes Cancer and Other Modern Tragedies

    This play is sharp. I love Anna's writing, it's so quick and so funny. I'm totally invested in this weird comedy about weed chocolate and ass cancer but also so so so much more. Would also love to design the sound for this if only for the metal remix of the wedding march because what is even happening I love it. This play is a really unique investigation into the unreal pressures of modern day capitalism.

    "So you know how important this store is. It’s more than a store. It’s a haven for words, for knowledge, for beauty. It’s a cathedral and a museum and a garden." I work in a used bookstore that is all of these things and Adam's play just hit me in all the right feels. This play is fun and lighthearted but it also means a lot to me. Adam strikes such a wonderful balance between play and depth and this play wraps itself around you and makes you care. I love it.
