There’s only one thing you need to know about newlyweds Tom and Sarah: They are definitely not “squirrel people.” Not that they judge, of course.

So when they discover a critter in the attic, they’re faced with a marriage-testing decision: To exterminate, or not to exterminate?

But the squirrels aren’t only invading Tom and Sarah’s home. They’ve infested the whole neighborhood. This time, the issue doesn’t only tear Sarah and Tom apart.

It threatens the peace of an entire community.

The Squirrel Plays is produced by Part of the Main, a theatre company on a mission to increase the representation of women onstage. “No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main,” John Donne wrote. Our name reflects our belief that everyone, no matter their gender, is a crucial piece of the continent. We therefore strive to make them “a part of the main.”
