A Love Story
by Ezra Brain
She’s Gone follows Sam, a genderqueer person in their 20s and 30s, as they end various relationships throughout the play. Each scene features the ending of a new relationship with new woman--all played by the same actress. Sometimes they end with a bang and sometimes with a whimper. In-between each scene, we see a fragment that exists out of time. These fragments give us insight into Sam’s past. Slowly, we begin to understand why they continually self-sabotage and we begin to grapple with the nature of love, loss, and relationships.
Mystery of the Foggy Bluffs Monster
by M Sloth Levine
In the town of Foggy Bluffs, four teenagers spend their weekends in a van exploring the woods, weed, and wondering if their dog understands what they’re saying. They remember unmasking goblins and ghosts as men trying to get away with real estate fraud, but when Zodiac DuMaurier is briefly abducted, he insists the aliens were real. What truth is harder to accept, that there are indeed monsters in the woods, or that the childhood you thought you had was nothing more than a cartoon?
