  • Seven Minutes in Heaven (a seven minute play)
    13 Aug. 2016
    This is an excellent opportunity for teenage actors, and a sweet and poignant play. The characters are lovable warts and all, and refreshingly three dimensional when high schoolers are so often forced into stereotypes. I highly recommend!
  • Two (a short play)
    13 Aug. 2016
    Eugenie Carabatsos is a master at forcing characters to be present with each other in a way that doesn't require words (although the language that is there is gorgeous) and TWO is no exception. This play is a treat for actors and audiences alike.
  • Stupid Ghost
    13 Aug. 2016
    This is a truly exciting piece of theater about the desire to really be seen by someone. It's a very funny show, and has moments of real sweetness and heartache in the midst of horror and melodrama. Lovable characters spiral wildly out of control in an entertaining and brutal way that is fascinating to witness.

    This play is funny, sad, and occasionally uncomfortable in the best way. A delightful slow burn!
  • Breeders

    This is a hilarious, smart comedy with an imaginative premise and characters that feel like friends. I would love to see these hamsters and humans on stage!
  • Where All Good Rabbits Go
    4 Aug. 2016
    This play takes you on an emotional journey from the humorous thought exercise of "What if instead of dying we turned into rabbits?" all the way to a heartbreakingly specific and painful experience of loss. Cochran's writing is full of vivid imagery and surprising moments of humor and pathos that you never see coming. Be prepared to weep!
  • We Will Not Describe the Conversation
    4 Aug. 2016
    This is a beautiful and heartbreaking script with rich and complicated characters, which is unexpected in a play dealing with such grizzly subject matter. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely dark and deals with human propensity for violence in a bold and exciting way, but it's also a very nuanced look at friendship and loneliness that I find to be very moving. It has two unusual and fascinating roles for women, Dani and Sonya, that will pose a thrilling challenge to actors.
