Plays

  • Michael Mysterious
    Michael joins a new family. It builds and burns around him. Sometimes he wonders if he is invisible
  • The Circle
    It’s a high school garage party. Amanda is a genius. Ily is a drug dealer. Kit is a runaway. Mutt is a mess. Will is a shit disturber. Daniel doesn’t know what he’s doing there. Everyone’s bit too drunk and a bit too stoned and a bit uncomfortable in their own skin. It’s an explosive combination, but it’s better than being alone on a Friday night in suburbia.
  • Still Still Still
    Red. Heartbeat. Everyone is always there. Everything happens at once and in one moment. Inspired by the book The Mind of A Mnemonist by Alexander Luria, the case study of a man with five-fold synesthesia, Still Still Still is an experiential manifestation of the world through the senses of the man who cannot forget.
  • Time
    A disintegrating monarch; a wasteland; a snake circling beneath. An adolescent revolutionary wages war on age, time, nature, and sleep. A party that destroys the world. Everything is possible. Nothing ever changes.
  • Control
    Rocky and Raine are teenage girls who drink, cut keys, and break into houses. Ben and Ashley need someone to talk to. Youth, crime, loneliness, love, and growing up; the fear of taking control of our destinies and the things we do to cover it up.
  • Air
    Mike and Kyle are unexpectedly pulled into a web of criminal activities after stealing drugs from Kyle’s brother leads them to accidentally kidnap a major drug dealer. Four garbage bags of pot, a bottle of ether, ‘would you rather’, and spiders: Air is a play about morality and fear.
