Five Degrees 

Five characters (3m, 2f), five ensemble members (2m, 3f). Minimal set. Target actors: ages 18-21. Mature sexual themes; infrequent language

Two pairs of established college roommates and a freshman are followed over one year of college. Their lives are co-mingled as they explore the very nature of connectedness through theatrical analogies. Vinny is an unsure-of-himself actor. His best friend, Adam, is almost a substitute lover. Brad, a cocky gay ingénue, steals Vinny’s heart. Shelley is Vinny’s friend who stays on the periphery but is most attune to what’s going on. Her roommate, Kim, helps the group explore the concept of six degrees of separation. Ensemble members play additional silent background roles and voice-over roles as indicated in the script.

Floating on Hope Ave 

(6m) All of the characters in Floating on Hope Ave are simultaneously seeking and running away from connection. Four stories unfold within the play. Martin’s entire story takes place in one day.

Both Martin and George break the fourth wall for the entire play. Alex/Brian’s and Caleb/Dean’s contributions are two-person scenes, except for Movement 6. Adult themes. All characters are gay or bisexual men.
