A Quarantine Comedy

It's Emma's birthday. Time to celebrate!

…Except that it's April 2020, everyone is under lockdown, and she lives alone.

Can she squeeze her three-dimensional friends and family into a single two-dimensional gathering -- or will all the quirks, smirks, and jerks make this birthday one for the ages?

Inspired by a bevy of virtual birthday parties, the Sondheim musical Company, and a plethora of Christopher Guest films, Emma and the Squares is what happens when a group of improv actors play with themes of isolation, connection, and companionship.
