AFLIC (Awkward Fornication Leading To Immaculate Conception)

co written w/Rachel Atkinson and Liz Bynum

3F, 2M

Bernie is your typical teenage girl. Except for the fact that wears a swim cap at all times, has an imaginary friend, and a mother named Carol with a delusion that she is mother goose. She also struggles with her love for her classmate Chip by insisting she becomes pregnant after they slow dance together. After Bernie comes to the realization that her pregnancy isn’t legitimate, she begins to unravel--and at the same time, Chip begins to come into his own as well. Oh, and the Narrator is a pair of legs. A hilarious absurdist romp about maturity, sexuality and identity that is perfect for student performers. Read a preview here.​​
