The Clueless Boyfriend

In July 2014, my play, The Clueless Boyfriend, was performed at the Lab Cab Festival: Parkdale in Toronto. 

Two teenagers try to save their best friend’s relationship from disaster when they find out he wants to buy his girlfriend something from a general store.

This is a piece reflecting on modern teen relationships, and how there is a lot of societal pressure for them to go a certain way. One should never pre-judge a relationship, because all relationships are their own creations of the two people involved.
