Plays

  • Lifeline
    A story of discovery and connection between two young adults in stasis. Easygoing, optimist dropout Mitchell and cynical shut-in Ellie agree to play hooky from their required support group, and through their scheme, start emerging from their shells. A one-act drama about real friendship, empathy, and the value of human lives.
  • As It's Written

    Parker is a successful screenwriter and director whose latest film just hit box offices across the country — her husband, Ethan, being one of the lead actors. She seems to have it all put together…or does she?

    While people seem to enjoy her new thriller, it always seems to come back to the first film she ever wrote, a tragic love story called Not Exactly Friends. As the story progresses, we are shown how Parker’s relationship with her ex-best friend, Robin, develops and changes in both the past and present. It becomes clear that being famous is not all it’s cracked up to be, and that Parker would do almost anything to return to a place where she felt at home — if she doesn’t have to admit how she feels.

    As It’s Written centers around themes of internalized homophobia, the pressures of fame, and social anxiety. But, above all, it is the story of a queer woman navigating the concept of acceptance and comfortability in her own skin. This play contains adult themes and language.
  • Foul Lines
    When openly queer high-school student Riley transfers to a new school in Alabama and signs up for their softball league, an opposing force (her teammate, Mackenzie) suggests a need to re-evaluate the naïve ideology that everyone on her team will actually be on her side.
  • Break
    Break is the story of two quirky university students, Julie and Marcus, who happen to meet each other on their respective lunch breaks at work. As time passes, the two of them meet up with one another every day on the same bench in the same park, and their relationship grows. The piece deals with themes of friendship, platonic and romantic love, and the importance of not letting others stop you from being who...
