Andres Garza is the type of person that would give you two thumbs up for any performance, if only he wasn’t missing one of those thumbs. Raised in the great little nowhere that is Kyle, Texas, he attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he earned a BFA in Drama and two minors in Creative Writing and Child Psychology. While at Tisch, he acted in numerous productions at the Stella Adler Studio, including a traveling production of A Midsummer Nights dream that was taken

to schools and prisons across the city. He also has served on many writing teams, premiering “Safety Net”  at Tisch with Playwright Young Jean Lee and “Graphite” at Theater for a New City with the incredible Affirmation Theater Company. He is excited to share this piece with you, so much so that he probably won’t sleep the night before.

Kelsey Sullivan is a junior at NYU Tisch studying Dramatic Writing. A playwright/librettist, Kelsey's love for the weird and unexplainable has driven her to develop a distinctively disgusting voice. As a female absurdist, she uses her work to discuss the undiscussable- specifically in the realm of love, sex, and intimacy- hoping not only to make people laugh (and groan), but also to start a dialogue about the weird shit that we all experience but pretend not to.

Maiya Pascouche (she/her) is a theater director-actor-adaptor. Originally from Connecticut, she has found her true home in the multifarious neighborhoods of New York City. Her work strives to challenge the heterotypical, male driven narrative commonly found in a theatrical setting by placing women and LGBT+ characters at the forefront of her pieces. She continues to test the boundaries of theatricality through sonic and gestural world building to serve these narratives. The best collaborative

work would not exist without a team of brilliant makers with a collective unquenchable need for truth and empathy. It is the vulnerable act of making theater that keeps her alive.
