Look at the animals, birds and humans  
The chase 
The Green Zoo
Although the bars divide us,
No one knows who the audience is here

PRODUCTIONS:

CHILD KILLERS

Samantha is new in town, she doesn’t know anybody, she can’t find a decent bass player and on top of that, her new job as a customer service representative to penultimate judgement interviews in the offices of The Great Cosmic Other, totally blows.

Between filling out paperwork and ushering existentially challenged child-murders back and forth all day it’ll be a miracle if she ever gets her album finished. Child Killers is a story of board games, fruit pies, paperwork, good, evil, ancient Aztecs and open-mic nights.

This show ran March 19-21, 2015, at The Crazy Horse in Downtown Boise.

signal-to-noise

A play from Thomas Newby.
