Purple Office Productions plays on the alchemy of its co-creators, Cheryl Hassen and Stephanie Nickerson. They combine the elements of imagination and creative vision with a raw honesty and authenticity to form original, well-crafted dramatic, comedic and documentary stories in which audiences see themselves, their beauty, and, in its extreme, the ridiculousness in our lives. The goal is always the same: to reveal, inspire, laugh, accept, let go, and feel changed by the incubated experiences we create.
