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 insurance? Does it involve setting a car on fire? As I Was, Not As I Am is mainly about queer roommates, headaches, clubbing, upstairs neighbors, fire, and washing machines; but it's also about love: the kind that would make you do anything for each other.
  • Acute Exposure
    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 we take responsibility for being toxic? 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?
