Twin high school seniors L and M are dead-set on attending not just an Ivy League school, but the Ivy League school. With their perfect SAT scores, perfect hair, and “perfect” minority status, they think acceptance should be guaranteed. When a rival student emerges with a personal tragedy to make an admissions officer weep, however, the twins will do anything to knock out the competition. Does that include murder most foul? Mean Girls meets Macbeth in this dark comedy, which sets one of Shakespeare's bloodiest plays against the backdrop of competitive college admissions. by Jiehae Park Directed by Steven Bogart Run time is 90 minutes All tickets are "Pay-What-You-Want" [less-]

In the backwater town of Boligee, Alabama, the summer heat is rising higher, driving the townsfolk to distraction and conjuring the spirits of the past to walk the earth. Wrapped in the combustible music of a Deep South juke joint and the sweat-soaked gospel of a revivalist church tent, intergenerational stories of loss and redemption collide. Based upon biblical stories and events in the town’s history, Every Tongue Confess awakes a fiery theatrical furnace in which some will be saved, some will be purged, and the truth cannot escape.

And Jesus Moonwalks the Mississippi is a poetic retelling of the Demeter myth set during the Civil War and narrated by the Mississippi River. Having run away from a plantation in Arkansas, a father travels South in search of his daughter Po’em. En route, he is murdered and resurrected into the goddess Demeter by way of devine intervention. Now having the power to upset the balance of nature, Demeter continues her journey to find Po’em despite the fact that the world will flood in three days if she doesn’t set Mother Nature right. The goddess arrives on a plantation in the rich fertile landscape of Louisiana (a modern day Elysian field), where her daughter was a slave. Although Po’em is not there and eventually discovered to be in limbo, what Demeter unearths changes her course entirely. In this epic bricolage, myth, spirituality, Gods and mortals are all woven together to examine the complex and profound fabric that is the American quilt. [less-]
