THINGS LIVE INSIDE OF DEAD THINGS
2 act: a modern gothic comedy chronicling the love story of MARY, the author of the seminal horror novel Frankenstein, and her husband PERCY. The play explores love, death, queerness, possession, and what it means to be a writer. THINGS LIVE INSIDE OF DEAD THINGS asks, how do we love despite the omnipresence of death?
1 act: offbeat, dry, witty, and devastating. KATIE and DARA’s parents went to the same sperm donor. The two women meet at a coffee shop to search for their origins in one another. DARA knows the story of their unethical conception. KATIE finds out. BAD SWIMMERS asks, is it possible for us to find completeness in one another?

1 act: a strange girl in overalls surrounded by children’s books has spent her whole life alone in her room… or so she thinks. Chrysanthemum-Pearl was the imaginary daughter of Dr. Seuss (Theodore Seuss Geisel.) When Ted and Helen Palmer were unable to conceive, Ted dreamed up C.P. as a comfort for them. By unlocking the tragic story of her past, C.P. might learn a thing or two about the practice of saying goodbye. BINDINGS. asks, how do we thank the things that make us?

2 act: a Greek mythology climate apocalypse fever dream of wit, tenderness, and existential terror. PANDORA opened the box, she’s pretty sure she let out the end of humanity, and she better get the hell out of dodge before her dad ZEUSS finds out. There is something between ARTEMIS and ORION that just might be love. Trees start disappearing, birds fall from the sky, there’s something in the water. MOONBOX asks, who will save us when even the gods are powerless?
