Meet the Daggers
 
Co-Founders Joey C. Pelletier & Erin Rae Zalaski met at Dean College in 2000 where they shared the stage together many times.  The duo moved to Boston in 2004.  Heart & Dagger's launch of "Into the Fens", a gay dance-party parody of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods premiered at Club Oberon in 2010. 
 
Elizabeth Battey, a graduate of Franklin Pierce College joined the team in 2011 and has stage managed and performed in mulitple productions. 
 
Though our company enjoys producing traditional staged plays, we love the praise we've received for our themed parties:  Into the Fens and the Future Games series (collaboration with Videodrome  Discotheque!).  Our new work festival SEX FEST features new short plays by Boston playwrights focusing on sexual dreams, situations, kink & fetishes. 
 
This year we are proud to give you our Drag Musical Sing-A-Long series.  We're kicking it off with one of our favorites-DRAG MISERABLES!
