Stuck serving overpriced juice to New York’s snobbiest gym rats, best friends Ali and Brie bump in and out of success, love and trouble as they navigate their futures, hopes and dreams beyond the mid-shift.

Sasha Chasen

Writer and Director

Sasha Chasen (she/they) is an NYC-based artist from Palm Springs, CA, where her two moms, brother, and the ashes of her twelve pets reside. Graduating from NYU Tisch, Sasha trained at the Stella Adler Studio, Stonestreet Studios, and Upright Citizens Brigade, and has collaborated on projects with Womxn Stand Up, the Stella Adler Company Tour, Playwrights Horizons, and the Experimental Theatre Wing. Sasha spearheads work including their stand up special, Desert Girl and The Stand Up Comedy Workshop Series – a series created for and taught to incarcerated individuals in NYC jails and holding facilities. With a love for all that is funny, queer, and kind (and the determination of a dog with a really big stick) Sasha pursues comedy and rehabilitative theater as a means to support others anywhere and everywhere she can. Sasha is freakin pumped to bring Mid-Shift to life with the brilliant minds at Ashes Artist’s Collective.
