Phantasmagoria, or Let us seek Death!
A rainy night in a Genevan castle. Debauched poetry and too much wine. A 17 year old girl writes a spooky story.
Centuries later, the creature still ambles through our culture. Mary Shelley unleashed her creation on the world: the first modern monster; an assemblage of the recent dead. On the 200th anniversary of Mary’s creation, we return to Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus to discover whether the dead ever truly leave us.
"The truly unique Phantasmagoria provides plenty of spooky fun, but, through its discussion of Mary Shelley and her work, also plenty of brain food that will leave you cerebrally stimulated long after the actors have taken their bows." Theatre is Easy
Ellen Stewart Theater at La Mama, fall 2016.
A Jungian mind-fuck free for all.
The internet is at once a character and a dense internal landscape, where desires, dreams, memories, and imagination collide, changing the lives of three interconnected people. It's cheap therapy for your inner child. With dick pics.

Let us take you back to the suburbs, our suburb, the first suburb of its kind in America. It's the early '90s in a planned community. Five preteens teeter on the brink of adolescence when a violent act interrupts their insular struggles and triumphs.

The Lucky Dark
Marie-Laure is living fully. Lucas is problem solving. Edith's work is her life (and life is her art.) Marvin is being present. Patrice is hiding in plain sight. And Francesca is lying. Two couples expand what it means to be in relation to each other. A dark comedy about sex, death, commitment, and nonmonogamy. 2 W, 1 M (with intentional double casting.)
Past workshops include: The Tank's DarkFest, directed by Meghan Finn, 2017.
