On My Honor

Troop 2185 are the baddest Girl Scouts in suburban Boston and their grownups have had it. The other moms have given up, leaving just Julie's mom Michelle to lead with Molly's flaky, spacey mom Liz. When new-to-town Janet signs up her daughter Brianna, Michelle is cautiously hopeful. Meanwhile, Michelle's husband David, when not trying to talk she and Julie into quitting Scouts, is trying to reach out to his newly divorced commute buddy Kevin. In a year of spectacularly bad field trips, new friendships, and precocious 10-year-olds with a lot to say, On My Honor is a comedy about trying to be an adult when you still feel like a kid. (Full-length; 7W, 2M)

Sam Loves Alex

A little raw from recent breakups, Sam and Alex meet by chance one night at a busy diner. Sam and Alex go on second dates. Sam and Alex catch feelings, meet each other's friends, and then each other's parents. Sam and Alex fight. Sam and Alex fall for each other. And break up. And fall for each other for real. Sam and Alex are six people. And one street musician in the right place at the right time. Something like a romantic comedy, a little like a fairytale, Sam Loves Alex introduces us to three couples maybe finding something real at a strange, transitional time in their lives.

(One-act; 3W, 3M, 1 any gender)

Katie and Dom Are Friends

Katie and Dom are 20-something work friends who share a cramped office at a small Boston nonprofit and bond over the job neither one wants.
