Plays

  • Eve's Song
    When we’re born we all have our very own song. It can prove nearly impossible to hang on to it growing up in a world that has to be reminded that Black Lives Matter. A middle class African American family is haunted by the present and the past of being Black in America.
  • Pretty Hunger
    Lea, a biracial seven year old girl with an epic imagination, takes us on a journey of growing up as she realizes that her babysitter is actually her father and that she is actually Black. Guided by her imaginary friend Bette Davis, Lea explores what it means to be a woman of color and how to come to terms with both of her parents and the baggage they carry with them.
