Exit Through the Sock Hop - The Tank, August 2016, dir. Emily Moler

performed by Matt McLean, Blake Deadly, Lindsay Nuckel, Cassie Gilling, Flynn Holman, and Zac Uslianer

Commissioned by The Tank for the August 2016 edition of their bi-monthly one-act festival and theatrical quasi-drinking game Rule Of 7x7 Kev began writing this play by watching an inordinately high concentration of American Bandstand videos. Like, a what's-wrong-with-you-stop-watching-that amount. And then he thought about Corny Collins and how one of his ex-boyfriends had an inexplicable Coca-Cola vending machine plugged in on his back porch. "It's a think-piece," he explained.

It's 1962. Charming television host Harry Hurricane introduces the nation to the latest dance craze: The Soda Jerk. And it all goes downhill from there.

Won't You Be My Gaybor - Littlefield, August 2016, dir. Emily Moler

performed by Russell Sperberg, Ry Szelong, Christian Eble, Emily Kaplan, Lindsay Nuckel, and Hallie Christine

Commissioned by UglyRhino Productions for the August 2016 edition of their monthly one-act festival and theatrical drinking game TinyRhino, Birthday Party, Kev pulled inspiration from the world of Mr Rogers, Donald Duck, and dementia patients. 

It's Fred's 186th birthday in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, which is near Flushing Bay but isn't quote Astoria. Mr Rogers is celebrating his big day with his friends King Friday XXX, Friday's son Tuesgay, local stripper Henny Pu$$ycat, telephone operator Miss Pauliffellatio, and a woman who could be Everybody's Grandma. Oh, and there's a tsunami coming. It's his birthday, and we're all gonna drown.

The Charlie Brown Turkey Lurkey Brechtian Queer Thanksgiving Special - Littlefield, November 2015, dir. Emily Moler

performed by James Zebooker, Teresa Langford, Alex Chernin, Christian Eble, Jeffrey Robb, and Alexandra Tse

Commissioned by UglyRhino Productions for the November edition of their monthly one-act festival and theatrical drinking game TinyRhino, TinyTurkey, Kev pulled inspiration from the work of Bertolt Brecht, feminist scholar bell hooks, the Today Show, and choreographer Michael Bennett to create his vicious takedown of Charles Schulz' beloved Peanuts characters.

Charles, a full-blown schizo, troubled by the voices in his head (who look suspiciously like that yellow fucking bird Woodstock), finds himself with a dilemma (what else is new?): he has to throw two Thanksgiving dinners! His dyke friend Patricia invited herself and some friends over, and Charles can't cook, so he has his dog throw some toast in the toaster and some popcorn in the popper and hopes for the best. Pilgrims see land, western white feminism is deconstructed, and this ragtag group of six-year-olds find hope in this genocidally-rooted harvest festival. After all, it is Turkey Lurkey Time.
