Cocooned in Kazan
Royal Kung Foolery
Inspired by the works of Nikolai Gogol, ‘Cocooned in Kazan’ explores the complexities of an indecisive man, infamous for jilting young brides. He yearns to fill the void of his beloved mother and to claim the large inheritance she left him, which he can only receive once ‘happily’ married. The pressure is on for both him and his ‘loyal’ servant to find the right suitor, all before the leaves of autumn begin to fall. Throughout this chaotic rat-race we see the hardships of a man whose reputation precedes him in a quest for marriage.

Nothing Like Your Profile Picture
Dating feels like buying a product and swiping feels like browsing a catalogue. What now? If no rules of dating are THE rules of dating, do we have too much choice or are we lucky to have the whole city in our pocket? Swipe right and we’ll see what it’s all about.
Maybe it’s about the profile picture and whether or not you wake up like this, but it’s also about who took it, the last time you got heartbroken by your phone, about sex, and about other things that you don’t want your mum to see on Facebook.
If a stranger asks, we met on a dating app trying to figure out life.
If your mate asks, we met at a time where sex would be cut down to a swipe.
If your mum asks, you met me at my show and this story never happened.
Nerdfucker: a solo play with bad boundaries
The spectators are early, her lover is late, and the players are due any minute. Not the best time to question what the hell she’s doing here, waiting to get naked in front of a room full of strangers, but with 60 minutes before the game starts, it’s all the time she has left.
★★★★ ” absolute painful authenticity and honesty … (a) tense, breathtaking little show.” (Edmonton Journal)

“beautifully and insightfully written, precisely directed and exquisitely, unflinchingly acted.” (Calgary Herald)
