By Jen Browne

Flowing in and out of time the threads of Astro and Sweetheart’s relationship are slowly pulled apart and intertwined with Willow’s search. Along the way Willow re-discovers the strength hidden in her family tree and herself but will justice be served or not?

Hags, Mopes, and the End of All Existence

By Jen Browne

Hags and Mopes have been married for as long as they can remember and they have had just about enough of each other so maybe it's not such a bad thing there's a comet making its way straight towards them, the blizzard of the century isn't letting up, or that the cow and the goat have moved to Florida because the end is near and they can barely remember the beginning.  


Hags, Mopes, and the End of All Existence is an absurd tale exploring age, love, and the race against time nobody can elude, not even chickens.

A True Story
By Jen Browne

Alba, Lissa, and Mimsy have been on the hunt for their father since they were young girls. When the phone rings out of the blue it is of course time for a press conference, a wrestling match, and some time in the spotlight. A True Story is an absurdist play about an absent father and his three daughters. It explores memory and how time and desire can change the way we remember the past.
