Plays

  • Amicable
    A group of commuter train passengers realize that they are all connected and will not be allowed to exit until they’ve addressed some “unresolved feelings" in this comedic sci-fi drama.
  • Henchpeople
    A self-obsessed supervillain is mere minutes away from unleashing their simmering vengeance upon The City, and right-hand helpers Oona and Jarlath are there every step of the way. Unfortunately (for them at least), something goes very, very wrong. Now these bewildered baddies must face an army of blood-thirsty foot soldiers, a formidable superhero, and their own feelings of distrust, self-worth, and burgeoning friendship in this new comedy.
  • Coffee In Limbo
    Two women have a coffee date after the world has ended. They soon realize that the apocalypse affects people in different ways.
  • The Backus Family Religious Spectacular (and Luncheon)
    Join the Backus family as they celebrate the birth of Christ through an increasingly bizarre ritualistic pageant that hides something very insidious indeed.
