PHILIP GLASS BUYS A LOAF OF BREAD
by David Ives
Directed by Sylvie Sutton
Philip Glass is one of the most famous minimalist
contemporary composers. This show evokes the operatic
style of his works and invites the audience to enter the
labyrinth of Philip Glass’s subconscious as he has an
existential crisis in a bakery. Reality is warped into the
absurd and time will become a moment.
THE ADVENTURE OF THE SPECKLED BAND:
A SHERLOCK HOLMES MYSTERY
by Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Larson Holt
Adapted by Larson Holt, using Glenn Carlson and Scot
Crisp’s radio one-act
In a manor in the English countryside, the Hunter sisters
are woken repeatedly in the middle of the night by a
bizarre, low whistle. They think nothing of it. However,
when one of them falls dead just after the noise, the
other realizes that only one man will be able to piece
everything together. Mr. Sherlock Holmes.
by Wagner Rawley
Directed by William Ramstein
Has it ever appeared to you that adults are simply bigger,
louder and more assertive versions of the once kiddos
they used to be? Don’t adults still lie? Argue over rules?
And, of course, fight over the coolest and biggest toys?
Meet eight businessmen and women who, during a tense
meeting, reveal their true and unchanged personalities.
by Jerrod Bogard
Directed by Rosalie Neal
America’s most famous horror novelist goes to an
insane asylum for inspiration. Surrounded by peculiar
patients in a hospital filled with creeps and crawlies, she
encounters a doctor who believes he knows the cure to
her writer’s block.
Inspired by Grand-Guignol and Artaud’s Theater of
Cruelty, this play will make you question your sanity.
ALL THE PRESIDENT’S TURDS
by Bernard Scahill
Directed by Cléo Charpentier
An incompetent president up for re-election, a looming
terrorist threat, and an international coalition: it’s the
beginning of a crisis in the War Room. Then arrives an
unlikely ally with an even more surprising name who
creates chaos while saving the day.
Political tensions and cultural differences lead to
comedic confusion in the White House, while making
us reflect on the nature of American politics—with some
crude potty humor thrown in for good measure!
THERE SHALL BE NO BOT TOM (A BAD PLAY FOR WORSE ACTORS)
by Mark O’Donnell
Directed by Abby Rochman
This play is about what happens when we don’t prepare
enough…or just forget everything. Everything in this
drawing room melodrama, wanna-be Sherlock Holmes
investigation goes terribly awry.
