Plays

  • This Mortal Life Also
    Celebrated theologian and pacifist Dietrich Bonhoeffer is drawn into a web of lies and deceit as a double agent in World War II Germany. He struggles to live with integrity while fighting against National Socialism in a landscape of secrets, broken promises, fierce love, and dangerous alliances. Based on a true story.
  • I Like Hamlet
    Their plan to see Hamlet has been derailed by a "Buy One, Get One Free" sign in a local tattoo shop. Arriving home, the monologist demurs revealing their agreed-upon matching tattoo - a hand-drawn heart with their names in it, uncovering a secret that may derail their three-month anniversary.
