Plays

  • As I Was, Not As I Am
    Laurel is sick. Her roommates want her to get better. How do you help someone who can't afford health care? Does it involve setting a car on fire? As I Was, Not As I Am is mainly about queer roommates, headaches, clubbing, upstairs neighbors, arson, and washing machines; but it's also about love: the kind that would make you do anything for each other.

    Dell has a mission, and Mara is along for the ride: to tell the people of the far-flung future that there is a dangerous store of nuclear waste hidden below the ground. But how do you craft a message so universal any culture could understand? How do two young queer people navigate finding themselves, and finding themself after something has changed them? Are we even talking about waste anymore? Sparks fly- and energy radiates- in this new play about a continuous problem.
  • Atrytone
    Athena came out of a headache, but now she has one of her own. How does the goddess of wisdom deal with pain? And why won't anyone believe (in) her?
  • But Not Uncle Vanya
    Uncle Vanya but without... Uncle Vanya. You know, the interesting parts of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya? The stuff we should care about. It just so happens those scenes don't have the character Uncle Vanya in them. How far can we get before someone gets mad he was written out, do you think?
