Plays

  • los pecados de iberia
    a writer sets off to investigate a developing story about orcas capsizing boats off the coast of spain. there she meets a rebellious cetologist trying to evolve her own species, and an ancestor learning to forgive themselves. meanwhile, not all orcas are free, and not all mothers are without anger.
  • parts per million & prophets
    after a provocative science project lands her on suspension, silvia’s eco-anxiety follows her through the halls of la monte high school, cracking through her reality and adolescence, opening up a channel to something much older and much deeper... and then there’s the crocodilian.
