  • Machinalia
    A woman should be a good home-maker. A woman should be a good mother. A woman should be good-looking. A woman should be morally better than men. Machinalia, an adaptation of Sophie Treadwell’s Machinal, chronicles one woman’s journey through a misogynist, machine-driven world.
  • Flee
    Delia is running. From her soon-to-be-born child? From shadows of her past? From anxieties about her future? Holed up in a remote, lakeside inn, she seems to have finally found some solace – and maybe some answers. Or so she thinks. Flee is a play about the things we try to escape and the things we hurtle towards (and also dead raccoons).
  • Mean Well
    Bill’s in prison and wants an audience. Dylan’s in the city and wants a revolution. Jess thinks she can help them both—until she can’t. Through letters, dreamscapes, and Dylan’s rash campaign to “save Bill,” Mean Well blends lyricism and satire to unpack how innocuous actions become grotesque, how power dynamics shift, and what happens when good intentions are not good enough.
