Produced by the Lowbrow Opera Collective
The story follows four roommates, recently brought together via craigslist, through their first forays into adulthood. Ruth, Tony, Bucket, and Drew come across a lot of challenges - mainly their own lack of practical life skills. The show is equal parts self deprecating humor and a giant middle finger to anyone who says millennials can’t get shit done.
Blackbird by David Harrower
Presented by Nik Doner and Libby Barnard
May 30 - June 15
Ray, fifty-six, has a new identity and a new life, thinking he can't be found. Una, twenty-seven, has a new life too and has just arrived unannounced at Ray's office. Raw emotions run high as they both attempt to reconstruct the sexually abusive relationship they had fifteen years ago, when she was twelve and he was forty-one. Blackbird is a story about living in the aftermath of rape and abuse—about the struggle of demanding a new future while carrying the weight of a traumatic past.
Pieces of Her
Written and performed by Sara Carbone
Pieces of Her is about the often magical, sometimes maddening world of professional child and adult acting. In the play Sara sings, speaks, and dances her way through over a dozen characters and multiple musical styles, almost entirely without instruments. The show follows her attempts to climb out from under the weight of a strong-willed father, unfriendly classmates, and two unruly manifestations of her psyche battling things out in her head. Watch as she struggles to find her own voice as a performer and writer and bring together all those disorderly Pieces of Her.
