Spiritual Shit

A short film written by Parade Stone

Directed by Raz Golden

Completed and ready for distribution

When Mya and Hunter, an interracial couple, and their friend Sophie decide to host a seance in their Brooklyn apartment, tensions arise as Hunter asserts his opinion on the legitimacy of ghosts as well as the importance of the two women of color in the room. "Spiritual Shit" is an investigation of the complicated dynamics of interracial relationships, a satire of our contemporary desire to "outwoke" each other in the group hang, and an homage to the ghosts probably watching millennials argue with each other in New York City.

An Invitation to Anna's Wedding

Written by Parade Stone 

“How do you love an addict?” Sage asks her audience at an open rehearsal for her first big playwriting commission, a memory play about her relationship with her mother and her former best friend Anna, two loved ones who struggle with addiction. After casting her now-sober mother to play herself, Sage's mom refuses to leave her dressing room due to a relapse on the day of her presentation. With an audience waiting to see her work, Sage struggles to move forward as she confronts her ambivalence about "selling out her trauma" for theatre industry clout, and the realization that sometimes loving an addict means quite literally letting the show go on without them.

Book and lyrics by Parade Stone

When Sydney receives a job offer in politics, she finds herself at a crossroads. Should she stay at her unfulfilling survival job until she finds a new passion, or can she reignite her now-disillusioned passion for politics? As Sydney traverses both fantasy and reality to come to a decision, she finds herself instead searching for the answer to the question that’s always eluded her: in a broken political system, how is she capable of bringing about real change?

Brother Johnny's Homestyle BBQ

Play and lyrics by Parade Stone

Music by Ava Heatley

When Brooke, a young woman outrunning the dysfunction of her past, impulsively takes a job as a waitress at Brother Johnny’s Homestyle BBQ, manager Mike denies the staff’s request to hang a Black Lives Matter flag in the bar. Despite his attempts to avoid alienating the fratty customer base, BLM flags mysteriously appear anyway. Brooke, the only Black person in a primarily white staff, agrees to secretly uncover the person hanging the flags in exchange for an under-the-table pay raise.

In the Same Space

Play by Parade Stone

Translations by Jonathan Rodriguez and Tiffani Teng

On a block underneath the J train, Chuck, a Brooklyn native, and Emma, a Manhattanite, debate their right call to Bed Stuy home. Tina and Sallie, sisters who grew up in the apartment above their family's laundromat, plan to sabotage their mom's building sale. Emmanuel and Jon, a new couple, debate the ethics of moving into the nail in the gentrification coffin, a luxury Condo. Punctuated by the thunderous passage of the train, these residents of Bed Stuy seek connection, resist displacement, and piece together their experiences in a neighborhood on the brink of gentrification and change.

Cupid's Corner

Written by Parade Stone

When college student and aspiring theatre artist/anarchist Sadie, takes a semester off to work at her brother’s popular dating franchise, “Cupid’s Corner,” she secretly plots a company takedown. “Cupid’s Corner” specializes in customizable, hyperrealistic robot “dates.” Customers simply walk in and order the person of their dreams (or sexual fantasies). The initial appeal is undeniable, but the Mcdonald’s-Tinder lovechild soon forces the characters to take an uncomfortably probing look at their moral beliefs and sexual desires.
