FEAST.

1 W, over 40, any race

run time:  60 min. 

When an ancient magical creature disguised as a middle-aged lady invites us to her dinner party, she attempts to form a truth and reconciliation committee to address the wrongs committed by our forefathers, only to discover in her grief that she may have accidentally helped to create the patriarchy. An immersive, visceral theatre experience where mythology crashes into pop culture, FEAST. reimagines an ancient myth as a cautionary tale against the rising forces of authoritarianism.

Lady Macbeth and Her Pal, Megan

1 W, originally performed by author

run time: 60 min

When comedian MEGAN GOGERTY is informed that she can’t play Lady Macbeth - because Lady Macbeth is a tragic figure of powerful darkness, and Megan is the human equivalent of a golden retriever - she sets out to prove them all wrong, only to discover that not only must she reevaluate her preconceptions of Lady Macbeth, she must reconsider herself as both a woman and as a standup comedian. Silly, theatrical, and complex, Megan attempts to answer the question, “What’s it like to be a woman comedian?” Spoiler: it’s murder.

"Nonstop hilarity and sweet introspection"

Bad Panda

1W, 2M any race.

run time: 80 min.

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. In this sweet celebration of non-traditional families, Gwo Gwo the panda must balance his newfound desire for Chester the crocodile with his obligations to his prescribed panda mate, Marion. The animals eat, mate, splash around in identity politics, meditate on their impending extinction, and love one another as only families can.

"Gogerty's bold revelations about motherhood left me in awe. You don't come by this level of honesty in writing very often." 

Save Me, Dolly Parton
1 W, any race.
run time: 80 min.

She's read all the books. Bookmarked all the blogs. She should totally have this parenting thing down. So why has she locked herself in her bathroom, the sounds of Dora The Explorer muffled only by her tears? 

Produced under the former title, Feet First In The Water With A Baby In My Teeth, Save Me, Dolly Parton was named one of the "Best Plays in Atlanta" by Creative Loafing.
