Full-Length Plays In Development

Samuel
Wynette, Delia, Jane, and Charlie are four adult sisters who can’t seem to agree on anything. Did mom make sweet potatoes with marshmallows or thyme? What did Grandma’s face look like? Are there monsters under the bed? Am I one of them?
And what is Samuel?

The Soup Play
A white, female, progressive Brooklyn-based playwright tries to get inside the head (and marriage) of conservative Cuban-American Texas Senator Ted Cruz and his investment-banker wife, Heidi. A lonely, confusing attempt at empathy in the middle of the contentious 2016 presidential primaries, through the lens of identity politics, white liberalism, Campbell’s soup, and self-righteous apathy.

OURS
Bob Sugarman’s story of repeated, horrific alien abductions was the inspiration for the 1994 blockbuster, “Birds of Prey.” Decades after the film, Bob is on a speaking tour, sharing his story with abductee support groups and imparting the lessons he’s learned from a lifetime of contact with our interplanetary Visitors.

Imagine the worst thing that could happen to you. Imagine it happening again and again. How do you continue to wake up in the morning? How can you be sure it isn’t happening right now?

A (mostly) one-person play.

The Andrew Play
Andrew dies, suddenly. His little sister, Lena, is lost. His older sister, Kate, is pissed. A play about siblings, loss, the confusing poetry of grief, and who owns your memory when you’re gone.

Sometimes It Feels Like That
While life may seem like a fairytale, sometimes it’s Grimm. Four teenage girls struggle to deal with their outsized emotions through epic love stories, Disney references, and street fighting. A play with music and movement.

Genesis
In the Beginning, there were no rules. Angered and confused in this new world, Cain murders his brother, Abel. He falls in love with the only woman he has ever known, his mother. He believes there are only four people, but finds a new one. What becomes of the Book of Genesis without God’s booming voice? What can we learn from our origin stories when they start to more closely resemble our own?
