BEST LESBIAN EROTIA 1995
In this triptych play about love, lust, and domestic terrorism, a joyous romp through lesbian erotic fiction collides with one of the darkest hours in U.S. history. A play about the heights of fantasy, the depths of horror, and how we carry on after losing innocence.
Can one small person or nation change the great tide of history? From a Bulgarian village on the eve of revolution to the fantastical capitalist paradise of America, a condemned poet travels through time and space in this Faustian tragicomic new musical inspired by Geo Milev's epic poem, September.
THE HOUR OF GREAT MERCY
Ed, a Jesuit priest, returns to the icy and isolated community of Bethlehem, Alaska, in a last-ditch effort to reconcile with his estranged family.

MENSTRUATION: A PERIOD PIECE
Claire is a 38-year-old lesbian, desperate to understand her body. Emily is a hormone in Claire's uterus, desperate to save her country from its endless cycles of revolution. As they careen across a sprawling tale of a body at war with itself, they seek their own answers to their burning questions: is a lesbian period the ultimate lesbian tragedy? Can you fall in love and still be a failure? What is the difference between our country and the uterus? And is this really revolution?
