When all of the academic and extracurricular programs are eliminated from their high school arts and humanities curriculum, theatre geek and chess prodigy Franklin McQueen stages a revolt against the Department of Education and the topsy-turvy education system, inspiring and recruiting the student body in his passionate and fearless mission. Cherry Bomb explores many social issues including class consciousness, the decline of arts and humanities education, ethics in modern child psychiatry, juvenile prescription medication, teenage rebellion, and sexual exploration during adolescence.

Eastbound follows the story of Asian twin brothers separated at birth who both travel across the world, one in search of a bone marrow donor for his cancer, the other in search of a new identity. Through their intertwined journeys, the show explores how culture and society shape the way we deal with loss, tradition and our own mortality. The writers of Eastbound are the recipients of a NAMT Writers Residency grant.
