Love At First Skype

Written By Iraisa Ann Reilly

Featuring Devin Preston as Declan

Iraisa Ann Reilly as Grace

Declan and Grace met on a dating app. Their first date got cancelled as a result of the quarantine. But this whole shelter in place thing is taking a little too long to keep postponing. A Skype first date can be just as good as in person, right?


December 2020-

So I’m in grad school, and I took a break from this project for the semester. But I kept writing and I’m still willing to keep collaborating with artists to create the stories of what we’ve gone through this year. If anything to look back on this time and remember what it was like. Hit me up if you’re interested in collaborating.

What is Agua-0-Plays?
A series of plays written about the weird stuff happening on zoom, skype, facetime….all of these weird online platforms during the COVID-19 quarantine.

What’s an Agua-0?
Well an aguacero is a big rainstorm. But I’m calling this Agua-0 because I am going to keep creating these until there are zero cases of Coronavirus in the United States. And we can SAFELY come out of quarantine.

How Can You Help?
Each video has a Venmo handle. @agua-0-plays. Donate there and comment with the video you saw. I’ll split the funds between the artists who helped me bring these stories to life. Or just watch, enjoy, and tell your friends. Also- scroll down and check out the list of organizations you should support in this time.

How Can you Contact me about it?
