Get Yourself Home Skyler James is based on a true story about a private who leaves the US army and heads to Canada after being outed as a lesbian. After Private Skyler James was found-out as a lesbian her life became a living hell at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. But when she began fearing for her life she knew she had to escape.

Peter Fechter: 59 Mintues chronicles the last hour in the life of Peter Fechter, an adolescent from East Berlin shot while attempting to cross the Berlin Wall in 1962 with his companion. From where Peter lies in the Death Strip, he can hear the lives family, friends, and strangers unfolding in the city around him – dozens of converging narratives culminating in the moment of his death and illuminating his decision to risk it all for love. First produced in 2011 by Suburban Beast at Canadian Stage's Festival of Ideas and Creation in Toronto, then in 2013 at the WYE experimental Art & Tech space in Berlin, Germany. (Cast: 1 male)

rihannaboi95 centres on a Toronto teen whose world comes crashing in when videos of him dancing to songs by his favourite pop heroine go viral. Sunny, aka rihannaboi95, a high school boy made some videos replicating Rihanna's music videos and shared them online. And while, yeah, they're getting him lots of hits, not everyone likes them. Some people at school found them too and now the eggshell world he so carefully treads is threatening to implode. Cloistered within the bedroom of his friend Keira – a drugstore makeup counter clerk – Sunny goes live with what might be his final video for his loyal followers, summoning the spirit of his Rihanna persona when he needs her most. First performed in 2013 in an inner suburban Toronto bedroom and live-streamed to audiences' computers around the world. Winner of the 2013 Dora Award for Best New Play, Theatre for Young Audiences Division. (Cast: 1 male)
