Plays

  • Years in the Hundreds
    For half a century, identical twin sisters, Jessie and Inez, have concealed a series of illicit secrets behind the locked door of their small apartment.

    When a young gentleman caller arrives, their carefully maintained life begins to unravel.

    Years in the Hundreds explores how peculiar intimacies, unabashed love, and criminal misconduct mix to create the strangest of bedfellows.
