I wrote this solo performance play back in 2014

when I was feeling overwhelmed by all the injustice and police brutality inflicted upon my brothers and sisters. 

It is semi-autobiographical and sadly still VERY relevant today.

My first completed full length play was born from it's title, which I randomly wrote down one day and thought "hm, imagine a play with a talking toaster". 

Although it is a comedy it deals with themes like, depression, death, suicide, and heartache.

Title: Brick Thieves

Type: Full length 

Pages: 101

Genre: Drama

Characters : 7m, 2w

Although the town in my play is fictional, this play was born from an article I read once about a small district in St.Louis where people were stealing bricks off of houses.

It centers around a father and son relationship in need of repair.

Title: The Joice Heth Project

Type: Full length 

Pages: 65

Genre: Drama

Characters : 3m, 1w

I learned about Joice Heth's existence by chance while reading a magazine. It hit me in a not so good way that, like most people, I had no idea who she was. I had no idea that she was bought by PT Barnum and was the sole focus of his very first attempt at showmanship. 

Her existence has been buried. So I felt she needed to be dug out.
