Plays

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The Circle
    It’s a garage party. Amanda is a genius. Ily is a drug dealer. Kit is a runaway. Mutt is a mess. Will has ADHD. Daniel is the son of a priest. Something bad is going to happen.
