Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band, the Angry Inch, fronted by Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing gender queer East German rock 'n' roll goddess. Using songs and monologues, Hedwig tells her story in search for "The Origin of Love" and her other half. It's a rocking ride, funny, touching and ultimately inspiring to anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile.

Produced by Victoria College Drama Society (University of Toronto) in October 2022.

Sunny, aka rihannaboi95, made some videos and while yeah, they’re getting him lots of hits, some people at school found them too and now the eggshell world he so carefully treads is threatening to implode. Cloistered within the bedroom of his friend Keira, a Shopper’s makeup queen, Sunny records a video for his loyal viewers, invoking the spirit of his YouTube namesake when he needs her most.


Produced by SMC Troubadours (University of Toronto) in October 2021.

Winner of “Best Direction” at the University of Toronto Drama Coalition Awards 2021.

When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group’s bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.

Produced by University of Toronto Scarborough Drama Society in May of 2021.
