MilkMilkLemonade, Published by Playscripts
Emory is an effeminate 11-year-old boy who lives on a farm with his chain smoking Nanna and his only friend, a depressed chicken about to be processed. Nanna wishes Emory would get his head out of the clouds, stop choreographing ribbon stick dance numbers, and be more like Elliot, the boy down the road with a penchant for burning things. But Emory and Elliot have a relationship — just not one Nanna would expect or approve of. With absurd, poignant dialog and brutal characterizations,MilkMilkLemonade is a bitterly funny exploration of gender, sexuality, life, death, and the human body.
(Jennifer Harder as Linda in the original cast.)
The Sluts of Sutton Drive, Published by Oberon Books
‘Would you ever want to sit with me in the dark? Just sit with the lights out, barely even touching, maybe not touching at all, and just listen to me breathe?’
Everybody wants a piece of Stephanie Schwartz. Her son’s demanding nuggets, her boyfriend wants her to wax and her best friend’s taking her to a stripping class. Now there’s a rapist on Sutton Drive, an obscene caller invading her home and a portal to hell beneath her sofa. How far must she go to make it all stop? And how far is too far? A heart‐breaking, taboo‐busting black comedy by Joshua Conkel, ‘the most important queer playwright of his generation’ (Doric Wilson, the Co‐Founder of Off‐Off‐Broadway’s very first theatre, Café Cino.)
The Chalk Boy, Published by Original Works
Beneath its boring facade there is more going on in the tiny town of Clear Creek than the opening of the new Taco Bell. Four of the town’s local girls are here to take you on a tour of their funny, yet brutal reality. They struggle with faith, friendship, sex, the occult, algebra, and the disappearance of… The Chalk Boy. This is a deathly black comedy that punches as hard as your high school bully.
(From the IMPACT! Production in Berkeley, CA. 2011)
