The Lives of Animals: Chapter 1, Looowra of the Pasture
by Scot Augustson
Heaven's most faithful servants are sometimes not great men and women, but beasts of great spirit!
Come, gather ye round and be uplifted by tales of inhuman grace.
Sometimes the Bosom of Abraham is an udder.

Dear and Darling, Sweet and Lovely
by Bret Fetzer
Sardonic fabulist Bret Fetzer tells two original fairy tales: In 'The Rabbit Skin', a sly talking rabbit woos a poor young girl until her mother and grandmother get in the way; in 'This and That and That and This', a hungry bear and wolf offer to babysit for an overworked widow, which works out better than any of them expect.

The Ponch Cast: a Play Based on the Podcast of the Same Name
Wannabe comedians Ponch and Greg are back at 18th & Union with a new play about what it is like to make a podcast during a pandemic. Don’t forget to check out their podcast, “The Ponch Cast” on YouTube, Spotify and soon to be Apple for your weekly dose of offensive, insensitive, vulgar, and life changing conversations. And remember it is all parody! For any complaints and/or requests for cancellations please subscribe and leave mean messages on their channel.
