oh, to be pure again
Set during one hot Texas summer at a Charismatic Christian church camp, this earnest drama follows the senior girls’ cabin along their journey to make an authentic connection with something bigger than themselves. A new play about female desire, submission, rebellion, and growing up in a religious culture that's obsessed with your sexual purity.

the tragic ecstasy of girlhood
After the sudden death of a housemate, four teenage girls living in a group home try to combat their grief. A new poetic drama that explores the chrysalis of female adolescence and demands our attention be on the youth of America who are living in the shadows of a broken system.
