Thomas Moore’s one-act play, JULIE, PAUL & JACK premiered in February 2022 in New York City at The Chain Theatre’s Winter One-Act Festival. The play had 5 performances including an encore performance after winning the Audience Choice Award.

The play follows therapist, Jack Smyth, who’s great at helping his patients find intimacy, but struggles to find it for himself. Jack works with Paul and Julie, a vulnerable couple who are very much in-love. However, the thoughts in their heads are defeating them. They turn to Jack in the hopes that he can help them breakthrough to a place of shared compassion and well, shared reality.
