Plays

  • Not One Drop
    Intimacy, identity, power, life, death. A fall, a push, a murder. A sideways glance at the roles we play to convince ourselves we are(n’t) who we think we are.
  • BURN
    Allison becomes allergic to the sun while going through a faith crisis. A previous love comes back into her life, and she has to choose whether to stay with her family, or be with him.
  • Poppy's in the Sand
    Keele can't stop thinking about her childhood in Scotland and the day she buried her sister Poppy in the sand--accidentally killing her. Keele's father tries to protect her, but her mother is hiding something about that fateful day.
