Plays

  • Deaths of Despair
    An online focus group on suicide in America becomes increasingly uninformative.
  • Planned Symbiosis
    The Octopus Collective sends an ultimatum to the United Nations: if humans can’t stop global warming, the octopuses will declare war. Luckily, cephalopods have developed a neuroparasite to help humans coordinate– but can an octopus diplomat and their grad student translator convince the Secretary-General?
  • Minutes to Midnight
    The colonel on duty at a missile detection facility receives an incoming missile warning, and calls his mom for advice.
  • Bankasaga: an Economic Tragicomedy
    Reykjavík, October 2008: Lehman Brothers just collapsed, Iceland is on the verge of bankruptcy, and an American mathematician is starting her very first job — in investment banking. Set in a pub full of Norse gods and influenced by the Icelandic sagas, this is a tale of romance, revolution, and the Great Recession.
