Every year, terraNOVA Collective presents the Groundworks New Play Series, staged readings of work developed through our Groundbreakers Playwrights Group.
The purpose of the New Play Series is to give playwrights an opportunity to have their work seen and heard by a larger audience. Each playwright works with a director and actors over a short rehearsal period to give further life to their work.

HOW TO EAT AN OREO Written by CHANEL E. GLOVER Directed by JENNA WORSHAM Featuring KRISTIN CANTWELL, RACHEL CHRISTOPHER and ALEXANDER LAMBIE
In How to Eat an Oreo, two teen summer camps sit a stone’s throw away from one another. Fatima has fled the gay-to-straight conversion center, and is hiding out in Gideon’s room at weight loss camp. While Fatima awaits the sunset to make her official escape to Wal-Mart, she and Gideon navigate around one another, sometimes crashing into each other, as they both confront the ‘cruelties’ of how they believe the universe made them.
