Distractions at the Crash Site: Short Plays

By

Steve Yockey

Come delve into the wondrous twisted mind of Steve Yockey, creator/showrunner of Netflix’s highly anticipated Dead Boy Detectives with an evening of short works full of intimate little stories told on a very big, very bold scale.  It’s simple everyday problems colliding with the most bizarre spectacle!  Whether it’s deadly space debris, a blood spattered chorus or a man literally called to save the world, what constitutes “normal” is forever in question. It is a dark, hilarious, potentially gruesome and beautifully moving ride.

Don’t miss out on all the fun!

The AllStore

Thank you Los Angeles for an amazing run! 

A World Premiere Play

Petra works at a big-box store to pay for college, day-dreaming of poetry and pining after Andrea, her older cage fighter co-worker. When working conditions deteriorate, Petra attempts to organize the employees against their corrupt management, sparking a confrontation of momentous consequence.

Nimrod

A Tragically (Un)Presidential Comedy…in Verse

A World Premiere Play!
Our First Production (and hit!) of 2023

And now winner of 3 Stage Raw Theater Awards!
Stage Raw Theater Award: Comedy Direction – Alina Phelan
Stage Raw Theater Award: Playwrighting – Phinneas Kiyomura
Stage Raw Theater Award: Comedy Performance – Kirsten Vangsness

It’s gonna go BOOM…

One year out from the election- an uncouth, bloviating, orange-hued president Nimrod sits on the throne, surrounded by crony advisors and entitled children. For the beleaguered First Lady Lani, the only good news is that her husband doesn’t even really seem to want a second term. But something is rotten in the States of America. A new age is here: An age of stupid lies, un-fake fake news, fracturing language, novel illnesses…and a terrible game for power is afoot.

It’s a wild ride full of betrayals, unexpected violence, and ploys masterminded by the brainless. Welcome to the White House.

This year’s YWP performance dates are
