Plays

  • Boxed In
    For more than 15 years, John and Louise have been torn between uprooting themselves and the lives they know and planting themselves even deeper into their house and routine. But after tragedy strikes, the broken home’s groans and shudders begin to sound too familiar. Together, husband and wife must determine whether bodies can ever be laid to rest and if memories are enough to bring a house to its knees.
  • Super-Ron
    In a world where the only caped crusaders belong in comic books, our hero, Ron Peterson, gives new meaning to the phrase “below-average”. When the September 11th attack rocks the country, Ron devises a plan to protect the people of Rochester, Minnesota and fulfill his heroic destiny, that is, if he can get out of the comic store bathroom.
  • flightless
    Sometimes all we want is to be lost at sea. Sometimes all we want is to escape the world we've known. And sometimes, when faced with a plan to do both, we just can't.
