Lady Macbeth and Her Pal, Megan

Lady Macbeth is a tragic figure of powerful darkness, and Megan is the human equivalent of a golden retriever. Award winning solo comedy.


Bad Panda

They’re the last two pandas on earth. It’s mating season. One of them falls in love with a crocodile. Who is gay. And then the baby comes.


Save Me, Dolly Parton

She's read all the books. Bookmarked all the blogs. She should totally have this parenting thing down.
