Plays

  • Rules for Coming Out When You're in the Driver's Seat of Your Mom's Camry
    It is senior year of winter break 2015, and best friends Lauren and Liam are parked in cars roughly 13 miles from each other. Liam calls Lauren frantically because he has a crush on a boy, which is new. These two 17-year-olds frantically discuss sexuality, family, relationships, all while grappling with their own imperfect friendship. *Perfect for virtual performance, as it is set over the phone*
