The Parsnip Ship is an intimate series of plays performed before live audiences and then made accessible as a monthly podcast. Hosted by Iyvon Edebiri and Eric Borlaug, the series aims to build community by exploring diverse perspectives and by bringing awareness to inspiring voices. We strive to program plays that are new and unexpected, that challenge our listeners with innovative form and powerful content. Climb aboard and listen along, or join us the first Thursday every month for a live broadcast from Cloud City!

IN THE ROOM, WAITING by Thaddeus McCants
directed by Tyler Gardella
Everyone who comes into a hospital is forced to wait; Malcolm and Aisha are no different. As they await the results of a pregnancy evaluation, Malcolm and Aisha's decision whether or not to bring a life into this world escalates past the point of no return. As people file in-and-out from every walk of life, and every corner of crazy, they unknowingly have a resounding impact on our young couple’s decision, and maybe on the rest of their lives. A moving and funny look at fate, choice, compassion, and figuring out when the right time to start a family truly is.
