The future. A resistance movement rising from the slums fights against high-tech drones and genetically enhanced soldiers using “Burners;” humans bio-engineered to become living bombs. As war rages, a woman named Liv seeks out a mysterious smuggler to help her cross the secure barrier separating the impoverished masses from the privileged elite.
* 2015 Semi-Finalist for the O'Neill National Playwrights Conference.
THE HOUSE OF THE NEGRO INSANE
The year is 1935 and the Taft State Hospital is one of seven psychiatric facilities in the U.S. built exclusively to care for “insane and idiotic negroes,” where the homeless and downtrodden are housed alongside the criminally insane and diseased. Attius builds coffins at Taft Hospital, where he has been locked up for over a decade, but when two new patients ask him to help them escape Attius dares to dream of a life beyond the hospital walls.
