ALL OF ME
4 W 2 M: 2 act dramedy
Potential couple Lucy and Alfonso have a lot in common: they both love jazz, hate astrology, and use text-to-speech technology to speak. Their mothers only see differences. Alfonso’s mom writes off any girl who isn’t a Spanish-speaking PhD candidate. Since Lucy’s mom doesn't want her to date, period, Lucy resorts to illicit measures to assert her independence. ALL OF ME is equal parts hilarious coming of age story and a brutal dissection of disability, class, and race in present-day America.

After another female candidate loses the 2040 presidential election, three passionate but disillusioned women dream up a 4th branch of government - a monarchy to be run by only the Queen of America. This 3-act political satire travels 300 years into the future, featuring a gas mask fashion show, ball gowns made out of blue jeans, and a walking, talking, plotting Siri. CORONATION investigates how history gets made and just what it will take to get a non-male to lead the United States.
