Dirty Crusty Or Grandad

Synopsis:
You're never too old to learn ballet. Or at least that's what Jeanine hopes when she starts taking adult ballet classes from a badass ex-ballerina. A play about dance, sex, bad hygiene, and the attempt to reclaim big dreams. (It ends with a 20-minute dance sequence. . .)

Notes:
part of EST/Youngblood's UNFILTERED Festival. Nominated for The Kilroys 2015. The Kilroys is a group of playwrights and producers in LA who publish an annual industry survey of excellent new plays by female and trans playwrights.

You Got Older

You Got Older
Mae returns home to help take care of Dad and  maybe (a little)  herself. You Got Older is a tender and darkly comic new play about family, illness, and cowboys  and how to remain standing when everything you know comes crashing down around you.
