Exciting News: The herd is producing Salamander!  After an exhilarating EERS reading, we knew we just had to work on Lisa’s play.  Salamander will receive development throughout 2018, with a staged reading to take place in May, and a production to take place in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival in September.  For more info, stay tuned to our dedicated Salamander page.



Women are turning “other,” as the Barbie Virus rips through America, leaving its victims blank – sexless, emotionless, colorless. Amidst the backdrop of a present-day college town, Girl, Lady and Woman navigate the ups and downs of modern womanhood, in a world that seems increasingly violent towards females.  Such violence comes to a head, when Girl is attacked on a night out.  The three lives intersect,  and the women’s worlds turn upside down, as the virus begins to take hold of them as well.  Salamander is about being a woman, and being in pain.  It is about becoming a monster, and losing control.
