Plays

  • juice
    Juicy Moosey is a juice bar in a wealthy NYC neighborhood, and both a home and a hellscape to its little band of workers. The workers come together, fall apart, and grow up, all in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • If It Weren't for the Women, We'd Still Be Stuck in the Desert
    Naomi Bensoussan is a fifth-year rabbinical student hard at work on her thesis about Rahab, the Tanakh's favorite sex worker. Naomi’s journey to complete the project is aided and interfered with by several patriarchs and matriarchs, a potential lover, and of course, Rahab herself.

  • E (and T) Go to the Pride Parade
    It's the day of the Pride March, and longtime partners E and T are preparing for the big event. As they bicker and reminisce, E and T find themselves swept up in a world of surrealist art, transformation, and most importantly - love.
