WINDFaLl, sk / two act
4F, 2M | In the midst of an ecological apocalypse, it’s business as usual in the small prairie town of Windfall. A chase-the-ace fundraiser spirals out of control as crowds of outsiders descend on the town, all hoping to win the record jackpot. A comedy about the end of human civilization.
The Obituarists / one act
3F, 1M | Caroline and Marla were never really that close. But when she hears that her childhood friend has been killed, Caroline is forced to confront the truth behind the stories she’s been telling herself. Moving fluidly through multiple time periods, The Obituarists is an exploration of the kind of grief we don’t feel the right to have.
Doe / 10 MINUTE
2F, 1M | In the provincial park where his drowned body was found, a young John Doe searches for his identity. Could a Mother’s Day gift across the country contain the answer? A response to the use of commercial DNA test results in identifying unknown decedents.
Doe was commissioned for Sum Theatre’s Last Sunday, and received a public staged reading at the event in May 2018.
Bear / 10 Minute
1F, 1M | Margot just got married and she probably shouldn’t have. But what reason could be ‘good enough’ to leave your own reception? Huddled away in a storage room, she looks to her childhood teddy bear for help.
Bear was produced as part of the Short Cuts Festival in 2017.
