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.

In SPACEMAN, the difficulties of interplanetary space travel are brought to life in exacting detail.  Radiation exposure, long term weightlessness, low light, extensive communication delays and poor hygiene are just a few of the challenges astronaut Molly Jennis must face as the first to Mars.  But she soon finds nothing compares to the psychological effects of having so much time alone.  Time spent mulling over the decisions she has made and what might be waiting for her when she finally reaches her destination.

“We’re all humans and the idea of sending one of our kind on a trip like that would be a wonderful adventure for the entire world. the whole world would get behind it.” – James McLane, Former NASA engineer discussing a one-way, solo trip to Mars

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.
