At an all-girls summer camp, five recent college grads are charged with keeping a slew of hormonal teenagers alive. Saddled with crippling student loans and paid a pitiful stipend for ninety-one days of babysitting, the counselors forego their actual work to have one last hurrah before adulthood kicks in. But when campers start to disappear, the party is over. Our heroes turn to a mysterious teen who seems to have the answers. but will they solve the puzzle in time to escape? The Lost Girls is a new horror-comedy from celebrated local playwright Courtney Meaker about privilege and purpose, feminism and fear.

The Queen City Comicon throbs and bustles with fans in cosplay, celebrities on the rise (or on the way down), disgruntled vendors hoping to make a buck, and desperate staff members trying to hold the whole damn thing together. A young fangirl finds out she’s pregnant, an actor promoting his new movie tries unconventional means to get laid, and Sailor Moon and Darth Vader fall in love. Passion, comedy, and geekdom collide as thirteen characters’ lives intertwine over the course of one epic day.

“…approximately eight intersecting narratives involving 13 characters unfolds. They’re all pretty compelling. It’s sort of like a stage version of Robert Altman’s Nashville but for nerds and not as weird. The narratives involve a range of issues, revealing the human drama humming beneath the alien sheen of commercial comic-cons… Te Yelland was a stand-out. She plays an often quiet, contemplative aspiring writer named Hazel, who’s not into all the hubbub of the comic-con. She’s the one deciding whether or not she wants to have a baby. It’s challenging to play a captivating introverted character—the impulse to over-brood often wins out — but Yelland’s subtle gestures and easy humor drew me in.” – The Stranger

“Fetzer and Green have created several memorable characters and plots and have done a fantastic job of weaving them all together in a story. Puny Humans contains clever dialogue, spoken by fully formed fascinating characters in intricately connected stories. It’s topical. It’s timely. It’s full of wit and wisdom. It’s a huge delight for genre fans but it’s accessible to non-fans as well. It’s a strong piece of theater writing.” – Seattle Gay Scene
