Plays

Whales and Souls

A Creature emerges from the lake in a small, rural town to warn the villagers of an impending doom. This one-woman fable delves into the way we relate to the environment and the choices we make to free ourselves from the shackles that bind us to the place called “home”. (1F)

Whales and Souls was developed under the terraNOVA Collective’s Groundbreakers Program.

The Dog(run) Diaries

A dark-comedy about a young boy’s intellectual, emotional and sexual pursuit of his older (and resistant) next-door neighbor. Filled with talking dead sisters, canine-imaginary friends, and summertime blizzards, the play is a post-modern examination on the limits of sexual agency and our preconceived notions of the “predator” and “victim” roles. (2M, 2F)

The Dog(run) Diaries was developed at The Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis, MN under the Core Apprentice Writer’s program. The play was also performed for two nights at the Hudson Guild Theatre in New York City as part of the Prospect Theatre Company’s Dark Nights Series.

Bridge

Two strangers meet late one night on a city bridge. The men soon discover that they have come to the bridge with the same goal: to commit suicide.
