THE THUMPING PART

Short Story Collection. Kind of just a bunch of stories of people and things that seem to be doing.....something? great? maybe love.....maybe just being really depressed while really wanting to be loved.....probably just being alive.

KIDDOS

Stage Play. 7 11 year-olds struggle to maintain their group friendship when accidents and miscommunication causes fear and fight or flight modes in all of them. The stories that exist within an 11 year-old's world are just as dramatic as that of a Greek God.

One act Stage play. Blur and Chrys live in a strange village ruled by Overlord Peepings. Their father has just been taken and as Overlord Peepings seems to be coming after the two of them next, the sisters must prepare for the fight as old as energy itself. One of hope and power.

CUPIDO, BABY!

Stage play. Cupid is not the sweet angel of love that we thought. What if the thing that governed love on this Earth was just as wild and rambunctious and mischievous as the young college students it was infecting? How does that frame change our perception of the love?

SOMEYINGS ALIVE

An experimentation in the surrealist's automatic writing, someyings alive is a ten-minute play written in one take without any stopping or revisions. What messages does the subconscious send out when we slide truly freely?

Hermey_the_elf_and_Rudolph_edited.jpg

HERMEY THE ELF WHO REALLY JUST WANTS TO BE A DENTIST BUT WHO IS ALSO MOST LIKELY A HOMOSEXUAL

Stage Play. A younger, darker, and more sexual look at the classic 1964 Christmas movie, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," but the main character is Hermey the elf. Through fantasy, a snowstorm, and a ballet, every character painfully searches for their purpose in life.

SUGAR PLUMS MOLDING

10-Minute Stage Play. It's the night of Christmas Eve. The house is quiet, the presents have been set, the young Lily is waiting to catch Santa Claus, and an old man who looks just like Santa Claus breaks in. What happens when magic and reality collide and can they exist simultaneously?

RIGORMORTIS

Stage Play. An absurdist play looking at the battle between a god and their poisonous tie to their need to create and their life or death addiction to keeping the power over their creation.

CHRYSALIS

10-Minute Stage Play. While rolling his rock up his hill, Sisyphus stumbles upon a curious little caterpillar and quickly takes a liking to the creature. Can love ever truly be unconditional, or are we just searching for the perfect condition?
