*TAKE ME HOME
An interactive live performance that takes place inside the mobile heart of New York City: a taxicab. Transporting three audience members from a secret location through a waking dream of the city streets. Presented in the Incubator Arts Projects' Other Forces Festival, January 2014. www.willyoutakemehome.com

*AND IF YOU LOSE YOUR WAY, OR A FOOD ODYSSEY
If we are what we eat, what are we? What is America's food culture? Investigating these questions through myth, story, puppetry, and song, seeds will be planted, drama will unfold, and food will be made and shared in a feast bringing together the actors and audience. Presented at Invisible Dog Arts Center, June 2014. www.andifyouloseyourway.org

*BECOMING MIM
A new short film starring and written by Kelley Jackson and presented by {LRP}. When old fairy tale tapes start to play in Mim’s head, she must sort through mixed messages from men in pursuit of a fairy tale ending. www.laurenrayner.com/becomingmim

*MENDACITY
Written & directed by Lauren Rayner, MENDACITY takes you deep inside the mind of a splintering personality, peppered with dark humor and wrought with self-loathing and denial over sexual assault. Join us in a rebellious journey of fragmented transcendence and the offering of hope. Premiered & extended by the FRIGID Festival NYC 2011. www.laurenrayner.com/mendacity
