Performances coming September
A Pill (Pride) by Leslie Adelina Treviño Bradshaw follows one woman's struggle to be remembered for helping humanity, while others struggle with the desire to pursue their own fame.
Waiting for Grimace by Ross Berman IV, is a play about a gluttonous America that is in constant search to fill an unexplainable and enormous void. By searching for the most American food at a McDonalds at 2AM, we find that same America is in search of so much more.
Adventures in Sleepyland (Sloth) by Michael Hardstark delves humorously into the mind of a slothful mattress store employee and the moment when his decision to help humanity influences his own lazy craving for a life of naps.
A Matter of Time (Greed) by Javon Johnson is a viscerally demanding look into the mind of a man who sacrificed everything for love, and who, now that his days are numbered, is fighting for every second of his life to bring him final fulfillment.
The Clown Next Door (Lust), by Anne McGravie. Is lust good, bad, dangerous, necessary, indefinable, incomprehensible? A normal family is challenged by their impressions of the neighbor next door, as their own hopes for the inherent goodness in mankind leads them to blind themselves to the truth.
New Men by Cory Tamler (Envy) is an envious tale of two women, one old, and one young, both lost in memories, and how jealousy of the other’s life ultimately leads them to an understanding of each other, and a chance to move on.
The Ghost by Ryder Thornton (Anger) is a comedic glance into the house of an upper middle class family, and after a potentially tragic wreck of a $175,000 car, the difference between anger and rage is distinguished.
