How to Make Friends and Then Kill Them

Synopsis:
Left to their own devices by their alcoholic mother, Ada and Sam cultivate an insular world into which they soon draw a third wheela pockmarked, limping wallflower named Dorrie. In the years spanning childhood to young adulthood, these three troubled girls learn to lean on each other completely, finding ways to fill each other up and tear each other down. But when a horrible accident upends their reality, they find they must decide whether to continue to foster their codependent cycle, or to break free, with or without each other's aid.

Im Gonna Pray for You So Hard

Synopsis:
Ella is a precocious and fiercely competitive actress whose sole aim in life is making her famous playwright father David proud. Over the course of a boozy, drug-fueled evening, Ella and David deliberate over whether to read the reviews of her off-Broadway debut& and things unravel from there. This daring and irreverent new plays pulls the audience into the middle of a deeply complicated relationship and sheds new light on the eternal struggles of parents and children to find common ground.

Notes:
Im Gonna Pray For You So Hard was developed during a residency at the Eugene ONeill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference in 2014
