Plays

  • House Plant
    "Every seven years your body replaces itself completely. Every seven years all the cells in your body replace themselves with new cells. Every seven years you are a Whole New-" Three persons. Their plant. Major Life Changes. Hold music.
  • The Convent of Pleasure
    Margaret and Katherine are moving? Going back to the earth? Going off the grid? Starting a lesbian sex den (L.S.D. for short)? Or maybe just camping...? Katherine packs; Margaret procrastinates; their friend Laurel begs them to stay. Ambitions of meadowy feminist utopias plagued by 17th century men, mortality, and ants. 2016 Kilroys List Honorable Mention.
  • I LOVE SEAN
    Three to three hundred women in pursuit of high ground between dreams, reality, and reality TV. (This is what happens when you write a play after transcribing an entire season of ABC's The Bachelor.) 2016 Kilroys List Honorable Mention.
