Plays

  • There Will Be Bears
    10-MINUTE: While camping, Amy and Fiona go on a hike to help Amy clear her head and make an important decision about the future of their relationship. When she and her partner encounter a bear blocking their return path they turn to the wisdom of YouTube celebrity park ranger, Ranger Phil, who has his own surreal opinions on bears and relationships.
  • P, B, & Jane
    10-MINUTE: Famed improv group, P, B, & J – self-proclaimed “raiders of the lost snark” – are here to entertain you with hilarious vignettes of freak shows, sexual identity, and Freudian slips. Literally. As Jane woos the crowd, she slips in and out of memories of religious and sexual trauma and wonders if she will ever outperform the shadows of her past that pursue her on stage.
  • Big Brad Wolf
    10-MINUTE: The Big Bad Wolf yearns to break free of the limits of his life, which confuses the other residents of the enchanted woods. When Brad Wolf attempts to break his family's cycle of cruelty and a pork-heavy diet, he's challenged by a plot-driven pig who insists he revert to his carnivore roots. This is a play about expectations, tradition, and the sweet smell of roasted pig meat.
