    Sweet, funny and unexpected - with wonderful mythical elements to explore, both thematically and theatrically - a strong one for designers!
  • I Said Run.

    A wonderful little horror piece - great if you've got students into make-up FX, like I was all through High School!

    Powerful, emotionally resonant, complex, demanding - this defies expectations and brings a truly thought-provoking level of theatricality to an event, an arena, a subject, we think we know. Quite amazing.
  • Paperland (10 Minute Play)

    Fascinating, unsettling, consuming - this play has captured the wonderful, terrifying exhilaration of standing at the edge of a precipice and knowing you could... just... jump.

    Wow. Just wow. Intense, immersive, confrontational. This is theatrical risk taking - and is a risk so many theatres - and actors - should want to run with.
  • Six Dead Bodies Duct-Taped to a Merry-Go-Round
    4 Feb. 2019
    In case you were wondering whether the title is a metaphor, it is wonderfully, wickedly literal. This is a macabre, fascinating, puzzling, engaging comedy, with a pair of strong, challenging roles, well worth diving into.

    This is a brilliant, brilliant collaboration between two top-notch playwrights. There are laugh lines that will kill, an over-the-top build in tension and humor, but topped by a devastating turn-around that will leave the audience stunned. Powerful, emotionally engaging - this is what a ten minute play can be at its best.

    I saw the production at the Pacific Resident Theatre in '09 - truly a stunning experience. This is an immensely powerful play looking at the lives of blue-collar Americans, living through the economic uncertainty that is inextricably woven into the fibers of their lives - but it is so much more. Any theatre looking for a modern successor to Brecht should look at this play.
  • Of the World

    Emotionally powerful and true to life, this play never falls into the trap of easy, pat answers to challenging questions that - in real life - might be raised in ten crucial minutes, but are rarely solved in them. This play is beautifully done and engages on some fundamental (no pun intended) levels.
  • Well That Just Happened

    Any time you start laughing out loud at the character descriptions before even getting to the play, you know it's going to be good. Wonderfully dark and wickedly funny - this play is like eating chocolate mousse, it's so good and so sinful!
