playwriting and projects

Connor's artistic work stands as a vivid reflection of his life's journey, woven intricately with themes of resilience, identity, and raw emotional honesty. Structurally, his plays often break conventional molds, mirroring the unfiltered, chaotic essence of his experiences, akin to the narrative styles of plays like "Prima Facie," "COCK," "Blackbird," and "Gloria."

 

Aesthetically, his works are marked by a stark, visceral realism, often juxtaposing the loud, overwhelming realities of life against the backdrop of personal introspection and vulnerability.

 

Artistically, Connor draws deep inspiration from his own life – the struggles and triumphs of growing up queer in a small town, the isolation and fear, and the powerful sanctuary he found in theater. His plays are not just stories; they are vivid, living testimonies to the transformative power of theater as a medium for personal and communal catharsis.

SANCTUARY
A New Genre of Musical

If you knew it all then, would you do it again? Would you do it again? 

"Sanctuary: A New Genre of Musical" revolutionizes Greek mythology, presenting iconic figures like Icarus and Pandora in a new light, free from the confines of their traditional narratives. This innovative musical invites audiences to experience a reimagined world where legends challenge their fates and redefine what it means to fly too close to the sun.

Screamplay

A performing arts school, aptly named THE SCHOOL, scrambles to keep things cool as a series of murders transform the campus into a live, performative horror show. Amidst the creative talents of singers, actors, and dancers, lurks a wolf in goat's clothing, orchestrating a lethal spree that crescendos with each phone call and a student's final curtain call. As the tension escalates, the question remains: who wields the knife behind the mask of artistry?
