Plays

  • The Sprinkler
    Lamar hasn't been home in days; Alex can't stop getting into fights by the reservoir, and Kate is seeing an unlicensed Christian therapist. The trio only has a few months of high school left before they go to college Up North, but if their conservative, suburban town doesn’t destroy their futures, the games of control they play with each other just might.
  • Blaxploitation
    At a midnight movie screening, director Roxie Spectacular exhibits their cult classic, "A Time to Die", in which a martial arts master and a genie try to use time travel to prevent the zombie apocalypse before a special agent from the future can stop them.
  • Time to A Phantom
    Kyle's apartment is haunted, so he calls his super.
  • Black Prometheus
    Stuck in a negative experience machine, a pair of Black test subjects do everything they can to theorize a way out of being killed over and over again.
