Reluctant to Burn
by Korde Arrington Tuttle
directed by Kate Eminger
Thesis Advisor, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

Eddie and AJ have both erected walls. After moving-in together, the need to protect themselves is intensified when their newfound lack of space -- and its effect on their sex life -- becomes unbearable. As a result of visiting Eddie’s once-estranged father at a vintage bowling alley in North Carolina, the couple is forced to confront their relationship to their bodies, and their parents’ bodies. What they find allows them to profoundly connect in ways they never could’ve anticipated.

Graveyard Shift  
by Korde Arrington Tuttle
directed by Daniella Caggiano
Thesis Advisor, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

When Janelle relocates to Texas for the opportunity of a lifetime, she and her partner, Kane, are reminded that the consequences of being in the wrong place at the wrong time can be horrific. For three Waller County police officers, how might those same consequences manifest themselves along racialized and gendered lines? graveyard shift, loosely inspired by the legacy of Sandra Bland, is a love story about collision, opposing ideologies, interests, truth, and how the characters in this play make sense of them. Or don't.

The Intern of Two Start Ups
by Alexander Kveton
directed by Alice Cash
