AND THEN YOU DIE (HOW I RAN A MARATHON IN 26.2 YEARS)

Hit the road with cartoonist Pengo in pursuit of the finish line - dashing through relationships, hurdling heartbreak, and threading through the Five Boroughs in a record quarter-century ... and time is running out.

I HATE THIS (A PLAY WITHOUT THE BABY)

Join David for a trip from when his son was stillborn and through the year that follows ... but not in that order.

ON THE DARK SIDE OF TWILIGHT

An homage to four pivotal moments in the history of classic vampire literature, this work describes the complete, two century epic of the vampire Aubrey Porlock.

THE VAMPYRES

Witness as a young doctor enters a mysterious coffee house, encountering an old flame, two musicians with a taste for blood, and the seeds of his own destruction. Sex, blood and rock n' roll.
