Plays

  • Paper Cut
    After rehabbing at Walter Reed from injuries caused by an IED explosion, Kyle, now an amputee, finds himself navigating the personal and emotional minefield of returning home. PAPER CUT is a raw exploration of the physical and emotional toll of our returning soldiers as well as the signature wound of the war in Afghanistan: the loss of limbs.
  • Mermaid
    MERMAID centers on a 9-year-old child who was sex assigned at birth as a boy, but tells her parents she’s a girl. It is an exploration of gender, sexuality, masculinity/femininity, & being liberal to a point.
  • Tranquil
    Paralyzed in the car accident that claimed her mother's life, 17-year-old Ellen is determined to experience all her teenage years have to offer. But when the past comes knocking on the door—in the form of Ellen's brother—her small family's delicate balance is upended. In a home awash with anger, guilt, and Ellen's raging hormones, TRANQUIL is a raw exploration of one shattered family striving to be whole again.
  • One-Shot
    ONE-SHOT follows two video rental store employee film buffs (and best friends) who are waiting to hear about a scholarship to NYU as the outside world descends into overt anti-Semitism and xenophobic rhetoric. The play is an exploration of white privilege and fragility, representation, the celluloid closet (ever-present), and who gets the space to tell what stories. It asks: Where are our safe spaces anymore?...
    ONE-SHOT follows two video rental store employee film buffs (and best friends) who are waiting to hear about a scholarship to NYU as the outside world descends into overt anti-Semitism and xenophobic rhetoric. The play is an exploration of white privilege and fragility, representation, the celluloid closet (ever-present), and who gets the space to tell what stories. It asks: Where are our safe spaces anymore? And what happens when the people we love are the ones making our spaces not safe?
  • Refuge
    REFUGE follows a South Texas Rancher who finds an undocumented teenage migrant from Honduras passed out on his land, a female Latina border patrol agent who is trying to find someone lost in the desert, and the animals who are just trying to survive – as everything is illegal in the desert.
