— Wallace Stevens
Bull in a China Shop
Inspired by the real letters between Mary Woolley and Jeannette Marks spanning from 1899 to 1937, a fast-paced comedy asking: what is revolution? what does it mean to be at odds with the world? how do we fulfill our potential? and how the hell do we grow old together?

Carlo at the Wedding
Carlo is going to be really well behaved today. She’s not going to get drunk. She’s not going to give any longwinded speeches. And she’s definitely not going to try to steal the bride back.
A contemporary adaptation of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya set in a run-down movie theater. An exploration of unrequited love, unexplored love, familial love, fealty, and myopia.
A seasoned detective has taken a fledgling under her wing, and is attempting to teach her the tricks of the trade--until the mentor goes missing. When a beautiful woman appears at the detective's door and mistakes the apprentice for her mentor, the untested rookie sets out to solve the case that her teacher was working on when she disappeared. Part noir mystery, part coming of age story, part rollicking comedy.

And these mysterious lights keep appearing in the sky, which may or may not be connected to the pagan witch ceremonies Carlo is hosting in her backyard. A meditation on family, community, and other delicate ecosystems.
