Plays

  • Hartford, Or: A Hellish Haven for Exceptionally Strong Quirky Lesbian Sexual Trauma Survivors
    It's a way too-early morning on a train platform at Hartford Union Station. We meet Babyface, a young woman who defines herself as "pedophile-bait." This is her story. She is alone until she isn't.
  • Fame and Other Drugs
    Loyalties are tested and toxic masculinities are lit on fire in this Completely Absurd and Utterly Fictionalized Retelling of Very True Events. This play is a farcical comedy replete with mischief and flying children, because the only way to dismantle the power of a man is to laugh in his face.
  • Float, Or: How I Learned to Swim (Not to Be Confused with How I Learned to Drive Because the Content is Very Different Although Some of the Themes are Maybe the Same Maybe)
    Over the course of one night, Lia takes action on her romantic feelings and avoids taking action on her self-care. Eventually she arrives at some sort of self-awareness, aided by text and phone conversations with her best friend, new friend, mom, and an elusive love interest.
  • the (im)perfect nanny
    An endearingly frazzled nanny, appropriately named Nan, is trapped in a game show-like hell with only a singular Voice to guide them. In this comedic one-act, Nan must find their way and question the very root of their vocation.
