One-Act Plays


MOther of gone

Janice spends her days on mechanized life-support, doting on a robotic seal named Chubbs and berating her young, diligent attendant. When the safe rituals of her life are shattered, she is forced to confront her past: the son she abandoned, and the forgotten wave that fractured their lives.

Hey. Let me buy you a drink. I liked your profile. I think I’m into you. Wait – what era of human history are you from? Did we meet before in different eras? How many layers of yourself are you wearing? Do I actually wanna know what’s underneath all of that?

A short play about the exhausting act of falling in love.
