Plays

  • Bastard
    Two brothers attend the funeral of someone they can only assume is their father ... or mother, whichever. When the sister they don't know if they knew they had arrives, reminiscences of their childhood become a bit tricky.
  • we're all athletes
    Two sports anchors call each play of an unspecifiable sport whose rules are an utter mystery while field reporter Desiree copes with her own insignificance and passivity. As the clock counts down, each of the characters must reckon with whether they've done enough with their lives, or with Life itself.
  • The Victorian
    Owen and Marie live in a Victorian home in upstate New York with ornate wainscoting, large bay windows, and rather grumpy sentient thoughts. Everything is fine between Owen and Marie, barbed jokes and mindless banter to cover up deep wounds are just their way. But when their younger friend comes for a weekend visit and the house becomes more irritable, their settled, acceptably unhappy life is threatened.
  • Sad Lonely People
    It's New Years Eve. Wade and Harriet don't know each other, but they're sort of friends.
  • That Bee Gees Song
    Two guards wait for the Supreme Leader to address the nation, but she's had a bit of a night.
  • The Butterfly & Stuff
    Gretchen and Maura are BFFs, but then Gretchen learns Krav Maga and gets sent to prison for assaulting a guy, escapes from prison, and assaults another guy. Things happen really fast, and little decisions can have a big impact.
