Loading Dock was formed by playwright/director Leegrid Stevens and actor Erin Treadway. The company is based in Brooklyn where we rehearse and build shows. The primary focus of Loading Dock is to create original plays that explore the extremes in human behavior. We produce emotional, character driven plays with an experimental edge.
I'm totally honored to serve as a resident producer for the company producing their eye-popping productions and directing their Forklift Development program.
The Dudleys! A Family Game
By Leegrid Stevens
Directed by Jacob Titus & Leegrid Stevens
In The Dudleys!, family memories are brought to life as a malfunctioning 8-bit video game. The Dudleys dodge ghosts, undying zombies and evil Aunts side-scrolling through the neighborhood as they try to win a game that might not be for winning. Featuring original chiptune music and life size 8-bit video animation, The Dudleys! is a story of family, regret, and the games we play to get by. Press start. Play the Dudleys.
