About

Thank you for checking out my work and what I'm trying to create. My name is Amara J. Brady & I want to make theatre about worlds that don't quite exist yet. I'm interested in what liberation, true liberation costs if we should get it. I make work that asks questions that I don't yet have the answer for and I want to keep making that work.

Currently I am mainly focused on developing 3 projects:
  1.  When We Were gods, a play based on a wooden carving that depicts the Venus De Milo as a Black woman. In it we follow Venus, a Black woman, who's main desire is to be loved and we see what she is willing to sacrifice to get that. This play deals with poly-amory, unconditional love and what it costs, and what the gods or powers that be owe to the people they’ve created.
  2. Grapefruit. A play that asks questions about sex and intimacy, the power that shifts within those dynamics, and how couples deal with it when they get something wrong. Mia, our sexually inexperienced protagonist, decides to give her boyfriend a very special birthday gift and chaos ensues. We workshopped this piece earlier this year at The Wow Cafe Theater with The Dare Tactic. The hope is to work towards expanding this one act into a full length play that is apart of a trilogy of plays about sex and exploration of self.
  3. The Wickedness of Men or Love Songs for the End of the World is a musical about a queer Black woman chosen to carry the second coming of the Christ child. She defies God and saves the world. Along the way she falls in love with the messenger angel Gabrielle.
