  • Over the Fence
    22 Jan. 2022
    This is the kind of play that needs to be staged and as many people as possible to see it. This short play explores the transgressions of men, and the women who are complicit with their silence.
  • Dog Park
    22 Jan. 2022
    This soon will become a Covid Classic. This short play explores isolation, loss, and the kinship of dog lovers. This stages beautifully, especially the end. It is a little bit sad and a whole lot of sweet.
  • Queen for a Day, a 10-minute play
    22 Jan. 2022
    This is fantastic. So clever. There is so much context. A brief exploration into American versus British society and violence in just ten minutes. I love it.
  • 4 Words of Advice (5 minute play)
    21 Jan. 2022
    "4 Words of Advice" would be a great Zoom piece. The staging for this play is endless. It could also make a good short film. This is the kind of experimental theatre we need right now.
  • Cold Foam (monologue)
    21 Jan. 2022
    This play exemplifies white privilege and the expectation of the State to do her bidding. The commentary on justice and "nice women" is chilling. Great job.
  • Letters Sent
    15 Jul. 2021
    Letters Sent is a powerful exploration of trauma and suicide. It is relentless in the examination of those that led her to the brink and those that were there to lead her back home. The audience feels WITH the Claire. Hibbard is a force of nature that grips you by the heart strings and then yanks. This play should not be missed.
  • Are you ready to order?
    15 Jul. 2021
    This is a great monologue for a woman of any age. The fact that the cancer is never specified makes it adaptable to many actors. There is desperation, grief, and humor in this short piece. This would be fine piece for a festival or an audition piece.
  • The Pee Test
    1 Jul. 2021
    What seems like small talk of two classmates is really something deep about the nature of love, destiny, and faith in signs and wonders. Both have ridiculous notions of what a sign of compatibility, a whim of a rideshare that seems "crazy" and expecting a human to hold their bladder on a six hour car ride. Charming and delightful.
  • She Fed the Devil (10 minute play)
    10 Jun. 2021
    "She Fed the Devil" is smart and funny. Eppich-Harris's wry, dry wit is as bitter sweet as the berries Jessie fed the devil as a kid. In ten short minutes Jessie and the Devil go through sin, guilt, temptation, selflessness, selfishness, and self-care. It is like all of eternity can be decided in only ten minutes. The casting of this show and the Devil is very open to interpretation. Eppich-Harris gives enough room for nuance and subtext in this tight play, but there is always room for the Devil.
  • Breaking the Cycle (A Monologue)
    9 May. 2021
    In "Breaking the Cycle," Eppich-Harris makes the audience take a good, hard, unflinching looking into the cycle of addiction, abuse, and family. From the first few lines we can almost hear the crack of teeth from a golf club to feeling the ache of an ungiven hug. However, there is hope in this short piece. Hope of a woman who chooses peaceful, sustaining love for her family and children. Wonderful, powerful piece.
