AREA D is a comedic musical that flips reality up on its head. It follows a band of misfits as they try to make their way to the top of Israel’s Eurovision to flip the status quo and make their voices heard. This musical follows the four rule-breakers as they try to break down the apartheid system they are caught in from within—one Rock-Eastern-Broadway fusion song at a time. As we watch our misfits deal with displacement, checkpoints, loss of citizenships, police/military brutality, and other not-so fun things, we will all laugh together along the way—apparently apartheid is funny like that.
The Baltimore Waltz follows two siblings as they travel to Europe to seek treatment for a mysterious disorder (Acquired Toilet Disease). Blurring the lines of comedy and tragedy, the play explores memory, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and the grief of losing a loved one.
with witchcraft in our lips examines the presence of witchcraft in Shakespeare’s plays and reimagines the fates of many of his most infamous characters, such as Lady Macbeth, Ophelia, Cleopatra, Viola, and more. An exploration of womanhood, witchcraft, and friendship, with witchcraft in our lips weaves a tale of self-discovery, emotional catharsis, and the magic which thrums within us.
