Plays

  • Big Brad Wolf
    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.
  • Bad Neighbors

  • There Will be Bears
    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.
