Image 3 Alabaster


National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere

After a tornado barrels through an Alabama town causing death and destruction, only June and her pet goats live to tell the tale. Alice, a prominent photographer, visits to document June's scars—while carrying scars of her own. Both women are forced to reconcile the pain of grief and recovery with what it means to truly be seen. Alabaster is a poignant, darkly comic exploration of creativity, loss and resilience. A play about women. About art. About healing. 

“A nuanced, darkly comedic play…that examines how people cope with trauma and what recovery can look and feel like.” — Chicago Tribune
