(un)conditional

 FULL LENGTH PLAY

2 Males, 3 Females

Fantasies are harmless, right? But what happens when your spouse wants to take a dark fantasy from the realm of imagination firmly into your bedroom? For two couples, the boundaries of compromise, communication, and unconditional love are tested to their breaking point, and seven-year-old Mia is getting caught in the crossfire. 

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

BLOOD/SWEAT/TEARS

 FULL LENGTH EXPERIMENTAL MUSICAL

3 Males, 3 Females

BLOOD/SWEAT/TEARS is a horror movie, inside of a musical, inside of a play, about Ginny (and her alter egos), a skilled female artist who (like her male collaborators) puts her artistic dreams above all else. But a story of determination turns into a disturbing tale about survival, as reality and fiction begin to blur during Ginny’s pursuit to get the final draft of her musical approved. BLOOD/SWEAT/TEARS is like if Inception and Whiplash had a baby – and that baby sang like 50% of the time.

Apparitions

 FULL LENGTH PLAY

2 Males, 2 Females

Apparitions is about Lilly, a 30 something customer service agent and Office Manager at Apparitions Perfume Company. Driven by a hyper vigilance she developed from untreated PTSD, Lilly takes her job very seriously and just wants everyone to be okay. But when Lilly is prevented from giving the customers what they want (her boss threatens to fire her for being too accommodating), a persistent customer shows up to the office in person to force Lilly to get what she needs. Apparitions asks, how much empathy is too much empathy? And when does the pursuit of understanding become dangerous?

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.
