I WANT TO F@#KING TEAR YOU APART   by Morgan Gould

Samantha and Leo are a team—best friends, roommates, allies against the world—until a new friend enters and upends their co-dependent world of mutual self-loathing and Grey’s Anatomy marathons.  A play about the nature of  friendships in all of its f@#ked up forms, with a special shout-out to the kind of love that sometimes looks like a lot of rage.

TRACY JONES  by Stephan Kaplan

Tracy Jones is throwing a party and she’s invited every woman in the world also named Tracy Jones to the festivities.  And as she sits  alone for over an hour, nursing her Diet Coke, wondering if any other Tracy Joneses will show up, epic loneliness is about to be tested beyond anything Tracy ever imagined.

August 3 – September 3, 2023

SPRINGFIELD PRIDE*  

Commissioned by Island City Stage

Imagined from today’s headlines, a story of politics, tense alliances, and deep conflict.  When a liberal, cis-gender politician’s off-record comments about Black Lives Matter become public and don’t at all match his public, social justice persona, can he still remain the Grand Marshall of Springfield’s Gay Pride Parade happening in just three days?

A new play about the divisions within the LGBTQ+ community and the growing ethnic, race,  gender, and generational divide.  As the movement is challenged from within, can its complex agenda and its traditional partnerships and social justice alliances still find a unified message?  Is such a thing even possible today, especially when the clock is ticking and strong voices are in the room?
