In RELIABLE NARRATORS, Sam is going to tell us a story. It’s a story about the complications of friendship. It’s a story about heartbreak, the triumph of love, and the human condition. It’s a relatable and universal story. But also, it’s just a story…or is it? RELIABLE NARRATORS was part of Blossoming 2022, The Vagrancy’s first in-person event since the onset of the pandemic. 


WINCHESTER/WINCHESTER tells the stories of Gænburh & Æscwyn and Jennifer & Amanda: two pairs of teenage sisters living in Medieval Winchester, England, and 20th-century Winchester, Virginia. Developed completely virtually with The Vagrancy due to the ongoing pandemic, it had a public online reading as part of Blossoming 2021. WINCHESTER/WINCHESTER was selected for Clamour Theatre Company’s Clay & Water Retreat 2023, and was also part of the Young Actor’s Studio New Play Festival.


SLOWLY AND THEN ALL AT ONCE is set in the Los Angeles of the not-too-distant future, as climate change has widened the gap between the haves and the have-nots.  It was developed with The Vagrancy’s 2019-2020 writers’ group (which, thanks to the pandemic, culminated in a virtual reading!). It was a Semi-Finalist for the 2022 Ashland New Plays Festival,


WHO PUT BELLA IN THE WYCH ELM? uses a historical mystery from 1943 England to explore the ways in which identities are imposed upon women. It was developed with The Vagrancy’s 2018-2019 writers’ group. A semi-finalist for The Athena Project’s Plays-In-Progress Series, there is also a Young Actors’ version available for use in high schools and educational settings. 


THE SNAKE GOD OF FIJI (A HEDDA GABLER PREQUEL) is…well, it’s a prequel to HEDDA GABLER! It was developed through The Vagrancy’s 2017-2018 writers’ group and received additional developmental support from dramaturg Penny Cole in 2020 thanks to the Athena Project‘s Plays In Progress Series. It was also a part of The Blank‘s Living Room Series in the Fall of 2020.



DRIFT explores the ways in which the members of a family are pushed apart over the course of a decade, juxtaposing their gradual alienation with the process of continental drift that has shaped our earth. It was initially developed at the HBMG Foundation National Winter Playwrights’ Retreat in 2016, and was workshopped at Paper Wing Theatre Company’s 2017 Summer Play Reading Festival. DRIFT was a finalist for both Relative Theatrics’ 2019 Playwrights Voiced Series and the Garry Marshall Theatre’s 2019 New Works Festival.


THE OCEAN DEEP asks whether it is more important to be a good person or a good friend? And also, there are sea creatures. It was initially developed with The Vagrancy with their 2016-2017 writers’ group, and then selected for their intensive workshop process, Playdate, in 2018. It was a semi-finalist for the 2018 O’Neill National Playwrights Conference and an alternate for the 2019 New Comedies Festival at B Street Theatre.
