GOOD FOR YOU

 FULL LENGTH PLAY

2 Males, 3 Females

On it’s surface, Good For You is the story of two couples, each struggling to come to terms with the sexual fantasies of their partner— one couple struggles with a rape fantasy (the wife wants to rape her husband), and the other couple struggles with pedophilic fantasies (he’s never acted on them, and desperately wants them to stop). Despite the extreme circumstances, at it’s core the play is about the communication at the center of all relationships, the kind of sacrifice necessary to make them work, and asks the question— how far is too far?

inspired by Ali's short plays FOR GOODNESS SAKE, and UNRESOLVED.

STANDARDS

 FULL LENGTH PLAY

4 Females

 

Troj is living her best life: she's in the top sorority, she's head girlfriend at the Lambda fraternity house, she's an internet sensation, and she's in the running for a dream fellowship. She's so perfect, no one even cares that she's a raging monster behind closed doors. Until Carolyn has the audacity to date the next Lambda president, compete for the same fellowship and threaten the empire she has built. Their resulting feud nearly destroys everyone’s friendships, relationships, and Greek Organizations. And for what? Neither one of them ends up with the fellowship anyway.

 

STANDARDS is the story of four women who have every reason to get along but instead choose to tear each other down.
