She Like Girls is a coming-of-age, coming-out love story set in Newark in the early 2000s. Kia, an African-American teenager, finds herself falling in love with her classmate, Marisol. While supporting Marisol through a health crisis, the two share a romantic relationship. The girls strain to keep their involvement a secret from their conservative mothers and their gay-bashing classmates. Kia becomes more and more vocal about her sexual identity, but pays a high price for declaring her independence. Though inspired by a real-life hate-crime (the murder of a lesbian teenager in Newark in 2003), the tone of Hutchinson’s play is mostly that a of hip, sharp romantic comedy like Issa Rae’s Insecure or Donald Glover’s Atlanta.

She Like Girls is presented through special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

Dead Man’s Cell Phone follows a woman, Jean, who, through the death of its owner, Gordon, inherits (or pockets) his incessantly ringing cell phone. So begins her rather surrealistic journey to find reconciliation and understanding. Through a series of encounters, Jean is forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect to another human being in a technologically obsessed world. Wildly imaginative, the play touches on the absurdity of current human interaction and the difficulty of finding and holding onto meaningful relationships. The play is at times funny, sad, absurd and touchingly beautiful.
Dead Man’s Cell Phone is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
