God Herself Could Not Sink This Ship
God Herself Could Not Sink This Ship is a new "romcomdram" that follows a trio of twentysomethings who write fan fiction on commission. They earn enough to hold down a small apartment, but they have to discover how far they’re willing to go for their art when an ethically questionable business opportunity gives them the chance to make it big. And how will they deal with fictional desire that starts to cross the line into reality?
God Herself explores the complex relationships of queer/trans people to a mainstream pop culture that rarely includes any sort of LGBT representation, and how fan fiction can show queer people that their lives are worthy of being more than subtext.
A developmental production of this play was mounted at Stanford University in May 2014. It was directed by Olivia Haas, starring Sage Behr as Amber, Christina Medina as Katie, and Sean Morris as Gavin, with designs by Raquel Orendain Shrestha. Financial support was provided by the Stanford Arts Institute's Spark! Grant program.

KATIE - Regularly annoys her Facebook friends by hitting major life milestones at the appropriate age.
