  • Losing My Religion (in 140 Characters or Less)

    What a relevant and heartfelt play about forgiveness and love. I couldn't stop turning the page. I wanted to know what was going to happen next for every single one of these characters. The play does an incredible work of challenging our ideologies to understand, to sympathize, the other perspective. This is another play I would love to see live in a post-covid world!!

    This play swept me off my feet! I love this play with my whole heart. To be able to take something as simple as a 'red bike' and look at in so many ways through poetry and heart. The play transported me to so many different worlds. It was haunting, heartwrenching and beautiful all at the same time. As soon as the health crisis is over, this is one of the first plays I want to see live.

    What a play to read during a time where there are fires literally everywhere just outside my home. What I enjoyed the most about Beck's play is that the stakes felt high, creating a sense of real urgency from start to finish. The story depicts environmental disasters with dark humor and poetry to help punctuate the tragedy of the situation. If you're looking for a short play about climate change and how it affects us all, this is it.

    What an incredibly funny short play! I don't think I ever could've imagined putting together internet and telegraph together but Tom did and it's hilarious. There's so much humor here in the "miscommunication" between two worlds of technology. What a delightful play!

    This may very well be my favorite Shakespeare adaptation about teens since She's The Man. This was incredibly delightful to read and I was laughing all the way through! The writing is so clever, fresh, funny, and poignant. I have a new profound appreciation for Shakespeare thanks to Alex's play "Beth". This play needs to performed and seen across all college campuses ASAP. Finally, a play that is INTENDED FOR YOUNG ASIAN AMERICANS. FINALLY. I would've loved to have seen this at my theatre department in college. (Maybe I wouldn't have fallen asleep in my Shakespeare class??? jkjk)

    What an imaginative, beautiful play about love!! I was struck by the language in this reimagined adaptation of Cyrano through the perspective of Roxanne. The language is poetic and lyrical but also clever. Going into the play, I didn’t know much about Cyrano but Monica’s play piqued my curiosity. I think actors would have an incredible time with this fun and engaging play. Highly recommend!!
  • This Vessel Is A Fragile Thing

    I love plays that challenge the form! There was not a single moment where I wasn’t emotionally invested in Britt's poetry. This was incredibly mesmerizing play to read about our relationship to the body that also felt so deeply truthful and honest. This is an intimate play that is meant to be SEEN.
  • The Janus Circle

    The Janus Circle is an incredibly funny snapshot of 1950s Hollywood. In this short comedy, the writing is quick, witty, and full of energy. The play captures the politics of the Hollywood system in this beautifully written satirical play. A true delight! Highly recommend!

    I can’t even begin to describe how I felt by the end of the play. It’s incredibly poetic and lyrical. The play takes you on an emotional journey through a character’s mind. By the end, you are left with a soulful and haunting image that stays with you after its over. What a beautiful and imaginative piece of writing.
  • Atlas, the Lonely Gibbon

    What a brilliantly funny play! I highly recommend reading this deeply thoughtful and imaginative play. The play taps into themes of technology, virtual reality, and more importantly, human connections. Deborah knows how to make our relationship to technology theatrical. As a reader, I really connected with the world at a visceral level. I could also imagine designers and Prop masters having a field day with this. Read this play!!
