Maiden Voyage charts the first all-female patrol aboard a US submarine. We are spectators in these women’s lives, until mechanics and interpersonal relationships go awry. Motivated by a subconscious need to overcompensate for gender inequality The Captain slowly chips away at her integrity in order to have a successful mission. This play explores the intersection between opportunity and marginalization and the mimicry of maleness to get ahead.

SYNOPSIS: In 1954 Marie Tharp, a geophysicist and cartographer, makes a revolutionary discovery only for it to be dismissed by co-worker, Bruce Heezen as “girl talk”. Eventually, ‘substantiated’ by a male scientist, Heezen repairs his rift with Marie, and an unconventional relationship forms between them, for just like the scars of the ocean floor, division has the power to reveal the truth of who we are.

NY Times Reviews: EST One Act Marathon, Series B

Excerpt: If you think of the latest edition of Ensemble Studio Theatre's annual Marathon of one-act places as a five-course dinner, it makes sense that the program opens with a tasty hors d'oeuvre like Susan Kim's "Privilege," and concludes with a filling dessert in Cayenne Douglass' "Oh My, Goodness"

Louisville Arts: Ain't I A Woman Festival 

Excerpt:  "The more personal drama of Emily, in which a couple struggles to move both literally and figuratively after a tragedy, was one of the best performances of the evening; the writing and the acting merging effectively."

Time Square Chronicles: Sometimes You Discover Something Marvelous

by Suzanna Bowling

Excerpt: "This play is so touching, so real and so heartbreaking. Ms. Douglass is a profound playwright with an old soul. She spoke of depression and loss like she had experienced it first hand. I found myself incredibly moved not once, but three different times. Even now the play moves me when I think of it’s message."
