Adult Things

Set in the near future, in a Hamptons "more Mad Max than Maxi Dress," ADULT THINGS follows three vapid young adults, a newly drafted soldier, and a baby that happens to be a butternut squash in the midst of an international war. When the traumas of war begin to spill over the walls of their beach compound, the characters' apathy is pushed to a breaking point as they confront the violence and terror they have been sheltered from for so long.


4-100 characters. 1 cis man, 1 cis woman, 1 trans woman, 1 non-binary character. Multiple other gendered characters. approx. 90 minutes. ​
