Plays

  • Mad About You
    FULL LENGTH--England, 1889. Charlotte Blackmore discovers that her betrothed is hiding someone in a shed at the edge of his property; someone who's a hundred years ahead of her time. A look into the "madwoman in the attic" trope, framed by hits of the 1980s.
  • Paint it Yellow
    Fern's late grandma has left her a stupidly gorgeous house, which would be amazing except for the fact that while she was alive, grandma was a raging dick.
  • Scary Horror Movie: The Movie: A Play
    Theatre for Youth: Max and Hailey watch a cheesy, low-budget horror movie on their date. Max is good at pointing out all the mistakes characters make in horror movies, but Hailey is too preoccupied with the thought that they might be living through one.
  • Diamonds and Toads
    An American Southwest full length adaptation of Charles Perrault’s Les Fées. The lives of Fanny, Rose, and their mother are changed when Rose is given a blessing by a fairy: whenever she speaks, diamonds fall from her lips. But the softness of a throat stands no chance against the sharp edges of a diamond.
  • Silver Sixpence
    The 'something blue' at Eliza's wedding is her sister.
