Roger & Tom May 13 - 22, 2016
Written by Julien Schwab (Regional Premiere)
Like a hybrid of a trippy Twilight Zone episode and the film Inception, one man’s journey to see his brother’s new play, Roger&Tom, becomes a meta-physical, mind-bending puzzle box of a comedy where the boundaries of imagination and infinity bend and twist and fold over themselves endlessly. Definitely like nothing you’ve ever seen, Roger&Tom ‘reduces the fourth wall to dust’ and will leave you asking how soon you can come back and see it all over again.
‘Remarkable. An absurdist comedy of a fresh exciting elevation. Past clever and making its way toward brilliant.’ - The New York Times
‘a three-person existential juggling act that shifts between profundity and screwball yuks’ - Time Out New York
The Cannibals June 30 - July 9
By Theroun Patterson
Winner of WIP 2015 Playwrights Festival
Directed by Kyle Barnette
New Year's Eve 2094, 16 months after the fall of the United States of America, a small family living in a cabin in 'New Colonies' of the Rocky Mountains attempt to adapt to some sense of normalcy, isolating themselves from the new order of society. When old friends pay them a visit, they bring with them the realities of the new world outside, determination for survival as they perhaps seek more than just a friend drop-in. A thrilling new work that explores what its like when we all must start over on the same playing field.
