Still - Falling and The Code explore contemporary social issues today's teens face in their daily lives: anxiety and depression, the complexities of gender dynamics, and the challenges that arise when the lines between friendship and romance are blurred. A realistic, honest, and bitingly funny look at the difference between so-called teen angst and mental illness, Still - Falling (which includes an adaptation for a male actor) follows Nina as she tries to come to terms with what it means to struggle with anxiety, depression, and self-harm and to rise above them with as much strength, and as few scars, as possible.

In The Code, grade-eleven student Moira becomes a hero when she stages a school-wide protest after her school's principal implements a dress code for school dances. But when the principal responds by cancelling the spring dance, Moira's followers viciously turn on her. With humour and nuance, The Code challenges audiences to hold themselves accountable for their words and actions and consider what's at stake when lines are crossed.
