Bethany Jackson wrote and developed Puddin’, a one-act play about a young woman contemplating her impending motherhood while being visited throughout the course of a day by her dead mother and grandmother. It is being directed by Joe Pray.
Taylor Cook wrote and is directing Spot’s Community, in which one young man attempts to bring the remnants of humanity together through the hallucinogenic powers of soda. His “Community” brings dancing, singing, drunkenness, and violent sibling rivalry.
Jacob Schiller and Emilia Hodges are collaborating on a play called Lungs, written by British playwright Duncan Macmillan. “Lungs combines hyper-real dialogue with a quirky form that expands and contracts time before our eyes, creating the almost physical sensation of being hurtled towards and uncertain future.” – What’s on Stage
