The Pandemic Diaries is comprised of two original one act plays, Long Story Short, a comedy, and Quaranteened, a drama.

Long Story Short:
Long Story Short is an offbeat comedy about how two friends involved in community theatre survive and thrive through the pandemic together.

Directed by Catherine Hannon, starring Jon Faris and TJ MacPherson, with original music by Eric Macdonald, Long Story Short was created and rehearsed entirely over Zoom.

Four teenage girls, two weeks of Spring Break, one English assignment and a pandemic; what could possibly go wrong?

Quaranteened is a drama that explores how each young woman comes to acknowledge her personal issues and ultimately accepts the others and herself.

Directed by Brian Mather, Quaranteened was created by Sarah Dolman, Gillian Hegg, Adelie Simson, and Rebecca Winkelaar, with Allyson Leet acting as a creative consultant and character coach. The group explored ideas and improvised situations over five months, building the world of the play word by word, line by line, and scene by scene.
