Staged Readings in LA & NY
Bespoke Plays NY
by Christine Boylan
An all female-identifying sci-fi rom-com, MEET CUTE tells the story of two women who meet in a bar for the first time, or is it the twelfth? The high concept is matched only by the lyrical language.

It’s late one night in 2059 when Hyacinth, an engineer, decides to emotionally dismantle her butler, Cleve. Cleve... is a sexy robot. ANALOGUE explores power dynamics in robot romance, the future of life extension, and the sublimated genius of women in this sci-fi tango about how to define human, and how to transcend it.
Directed by Mike Rozycki
HERETICS tells the story of Magali, a noblewoman raised to believe that she carries the Magdalene bloodline, and a sacred duty to pass it on. But in 13th-century Languedoc, Cathars see procreation as a sin, the Catholic Church burns those “good Christians” by the hundreds, and Troubadours sing that marriage is no impediment to true love. These are just some of the heresies in this stirring meditation on Truth, and how Love and Faith can reveal it or become its opposition. Part courtly romance, part spiritual allegory, it is based on meticulous research, but refuses to let history get in the way of a good story.
Directed by Thomas Cunningham
