Maren, a young queer woman fresh out of college, finds out that her cousin (and friend) has been arrested for child molestation. Years later, she visits her cousin in prison and, through flashbacks, navigates her family’s hidden past, her father’s homophobia, and if love should know bounds.

The Binds We Maneuver

Morgan presented more of their poetry, this time personally performing with the support of the Lemon and Ginger podcast. "The Binds We Maneuver" was a workshop performance presentation featuring performance art, film, spoken word, play and musical excerpts -- all pieces featured or highlighted the "binds" women-identifying* humans get in and out of. 


*Morgan no longer identifies as a woman, but is still proud of the work they did in The Binds We Maneuver.

The Birthday Party, or Three People Who Are A Mess

Morgan has been writing short stories, songs, and poems for as long as they can remember. Their high school creative writing teacher gave them the confidence to write daily, and only in the past year and a half have they begun to submit their poetry and writing for performances. Morgan's plays Thick Blood Thick Water and The Birthday Party, or Three People Who Are A Mess had productions this September!
