Featuring 10-minute one acts: TTYL, Cradle Robber, my body. my voice, and full-length: #NotOneMore and Breast Advice
ONE ACT – TTYL is about a conversation that explores the fragile relationship between mother and daughter. Sometimes, words not said are just as important as those that are.
Staged managed by Laura Moch, featuring Alexa Sheppard, Angel Borths, and Evelyn Logan
ONE ACT – Cradle Robber is about a gay couple’s adoption of a newborn thwarted by homophobia.
Staged managed by Laura Moch, featuring Paola Gonzalez, Evelyn Logan, and Sarah Munera
ONE ACT – my body. my voice. is a story of three women in crisis, in different stages of their lives during the overturn of Roe V Wade.
Staged managed by Laura Moch, featuring Alexandra Hooker, Molly Dakota Ganong, and Amy C. Ragg
FULL-LENGTH – #NotOneMore is a dramatic production in two parts: BEFORE and AFTER, weaved together with a common thread. It takes an unflinching look at bullying, sexual violence, mental health, a school shooting, and the trauma the survivors left behind face.
Staged managed by Laura Moch, featuring Sarah Munera, Hannah Hockman, Alexandra Hooker, Megan Oliva, Beth Behner, Amy C Ragg, Chonesty Osborne, and Naomi Sample
FULL-LENGTH – (2022 Runner-Up Broadway World Tampa Best New Play or Musical) Called the Vagina Monologues for boobs in its workshop, the setting of Breast Advice is two busy, crowded backstage dressing rooms, with casts preparing for a show. It features all social-media-curated original monologues to make you laugh and cry, which hopefully will do for boobs what Eve Ensler did for vaginas.
Staged managed by Laura Moch, featuring Olivia Salgado Mancuso, Constantine Kyriakou, Andrew Brunner, Naomi Sample, Sarah Munera, LeeAnn Smith, Molly Dakota Ganong, Mary Chauvin, Newt Pantalones, Alexa Sheppard, Paola Maria, Kitana Perez, Beth Behner, Evelyn Logan, Amy Rochelle, Amy C.
