Scared of being eaten by a dinosaur, Spencer refuses to leave her room.

What people are saying about Dinosaur:

“I've been this girl. I've known this girl. Dinosaur is such a sweet, relateable, and funny take on anxiety and how it can take hold of us-- even when it may seem absolutely ridiculous to the rest of the world. A great story about friendship and overcoming the hard times when leaving the house just doesn't seem possible.” 
- Lindsay Partain, Playwright
“In this tightly developed ten pages, Hayet takes us on a hilariously engaging journey through the territory of childhood fears. This play is so funny - until the moment it's not. No spoilers, but this lovely piece reverberates with meaning and profound experience. Writing like this, that can come at a hard topic from a new angle, is remarkable, readable and would be so compelling onstage. ”
 - Rachael Carnes, Playwright

“What starts as a positive laugh riot takes a turn for the real deal when a young woman refuses to get out of bed. An absolute vindication about the fears we have about being part of an horridly violent world and our need to go on living in it, perhaps only a few baby steps at a time. Incredible message and so accessibly done. Exceptional work from Hayet, in what is proving to be an inimitable style.”
 - Ricardo Soltero-Brown, Playwright
