Follow Scraps on her journey of self-discovery and her effort to shed herself of the patchwork quilt that she is made of in order to become a more "normal" person. Using the setting of America's first fairy tale, this play explores racial and gender identity, and the myriad of people that make up the patchwork of this country. SCRAPS explores our capacity to love and our need to find intimacy through trust and friendship.

"...The essence of Scraps is her optimism; the essence of Scraps is its unveiling of the complexity of relationships and identities that are central to America's favorite Kansas alternative. The ensemble gleefully acquiesces to all the shapeshifting required with multiple roles and moveable set pieces. Charlie Irving brings vulnerability and complexity to her supporting role as our old pal Dorothy."

"...With beautiful costumes by Zachary Ryan Allen and fun puppetry by Whitaker, along with Howard's quick pacing and this cast's clear joy of performance, Scraps is an enjoyable couple of hours. ( The play's first act could be somewhat truncated and the intermission eliminated to get it down to an hour and a half, which is probably what the material demands. ) It's unfortunate that, the night I saw it, very few people were in the audience. Inventive and fun, Scraps deserves better than the, um, scraps left over from other shows. Its warm-hearted message, campy style and strong acting make it a good choice for the entire family."
