(stereo) headphones

(stereo) headphones
Two men at the end of the world, a woman who believes she turns children to stone, some college students with alcohol and a sledgehammer, the perpetrator of a hit-and-run accident, a man obsessed with asphyxiation, and a roadside elephant in India. the very broken characters that inhabit this collection of shorts wander through a dimly lit, over stimulated and paranoia-fueled world that exists just underneath the dominant popular culture. From the darkly comic to the starkly distressing, these uneasy little plays are tightly wound, structurally adventurous glimpses into some of the most simultaneously intimate and harrowing moments of everyday life.

Cartoon

Cartoon
Join the exploits of a band of mismatched cartoon stereotypes on a wild ride through this animated world, Presented in the style of a Commedia dell'Arte scenario gone berserk, Cartoon is a devilishly violent social commentary that explores the rapid coalescence of media, politics and consumer giants. A young, idealistic upstart named Trouble steals the giant hammer that Esther, the bratty dictator, uses to maintain a monotonous but peaceful order. Chaos ensues. Bombs explode. Puppets are set free. Anime girls fight. And as the bodies pile up, the violence begins to creep off the stage and into the audience. there's nothing like a punch in the face to really get the blood moving.

Disassembly

Disassembly
Evan is what you would call "accident-prone." Having suffered from various injuries his entire life, he's now been randomly stabbed. In his apartment, his twin sister and his fiancee are trying to help him recover while fending off a steady stream of visitors and a bitter neighbor with a thing for stuffed cats. Something isn't quite adding up though. As the morning descends into a buzz of secrets and lies, this dark farce quickly becomes a brutally funny commentary on how, under the right circumstances, violence can take hold of just about anyone.

Large Animal Games

Large Animal Games
This incisive, unexpected, and larger than life tale of sex, love, and self delusion tracks the overlapping escapades of a group of friends old enough to know better in love but still naive enough to mess things up anyway, and the man who supplies them with equal parts tough love, lingerie and self awareness. In a series of fluid scenes, Large Animal Games takes a comically skewed and razor-sharp look at modern relationships through a mix of bullfights, big game hunting and intimate apparel.

Niagra Falls

Niagra Falls
Newlyweds Jack and Avery Perch want to enjoy their kitschy Niagara Falls honeymoon, but doubts about their speedy nuptials, the unfortunate history of their room, and the opera-singing concierge aren't helping. Meanwhile down on the boardwalk, a woman who might have been Avery is living something that might have been Avery's unmarried life against the backdrop of rickety carnival rides and fortune tellers. When they collide, both women see their lives flash before their eyes in this magical romantic comedy about the choices we make in love and the things we have to leave behind.

very still & hard to see
This short play cycle recounts the history of a cursed hotel and the unfortunate guests who stay there. From riding in an erratic elevator and dealing with possessive ghosts to managing an ever-expanding hole in the floor armed only with gleaning supplies, these encounters with the unkown chillingly collapse the distance between the real and the surreal and remind us that, sometimes, bad things do happen for a reason.

Wolves

Wolves
In Wolves, two men's folie a deux overtakes their small apartment and spills out onto city streets. When ex-boyfriend Jack brings a strange man home to woodland-obsessed Ben's apartment, the Narrator can barely keep a lid on the looming violence. This deconstruction of the Little Red Riding Hood story is a darkly comic, predatory fairy tale for adults that explores the conflation of sex and fear in modern culture, the comfort of lava lamps, and the dangers of a handy axe.

wonder: an American hymn to the shimmer of television and the End of history

Synopsis:
Place: America. Time: America. An epic solar eclipse marks the end of history and the beginning of "life" as presented on television. While a fledgling Eden tries to bloom in one suburban living room, the desperate memory of something grand savagely bangs on the door. A muted husband, his struggling wife, a terrified single mother, her prescient son, a traveling salesman, a bourbon-soaked radio announcer, and everyone at the local television affiliate collide and unravel under darkened skies in this crush of realism, allegory and American myth. This is an original NYU Graduate Acting commission.
