Winnie and Jace have been getting close ever since their classmate jumped in front of a train – but we don’t need to talk about that. Actually, it’s sort of weird that you brought it up. Was anyone even friends with him anyway? A play about teenagers who hang out in basements.

Lee’s dog Jasper was old, but when it appears his girlfriend Melinda may have hastened his death, Lee has no choice but to turn to his estranged family for comfort. But is Lee’s grief really about the loss of a pet, or does the true source of his pain lie deep in the past, buried in the red dirt of his rural southern home?

Letters and airplane tickets fall from the sky. Memories, like snowflakes and feathers, come in on a breeze. Grace waits for an email to come. James waits to send it. And as they wait, they replay memories, imagine futures, and deal with an uncomfortable present.

He’s into vore, she’s into centaurs (like, sexually). A dark comedy set in the isolating landscape of human relationships, and neighboring small towns on the Oregon coast.

Minsk and Wimple live in their tent at the bottom of the stairs under the bright in the up and, for them, every day is the same. Until today. An absurd fairy tale about the rules of societies and what happens when they change.
