The Invention of Tragedy (a reading)
by Mac Wellman
Directed by Meghan Finn

A chorus of students, all alike and all unalike.  There are 1001 of them and they are trying like the devil to tell a simple story.  Perhaps the story about the tragedy of the SANDWICH MAN with sandwich boards upon which nothing is written and hence with nothing to say.

 

BEFORE THE…
Before and Before That
by Mac Wellman 
Directed by Timothy Siragusa

Giant eggs, shadows, guys and girls, girls and guys, rage and insults, worlds flooded over, green row boats and candles. Just another day like the one that was before the before . .

Cast:
Terry Brennan
Jenna Briggs
Damien Dizonno

ghosts wonder where they went wrong
by Constance Congdon, Erik Ehn and Sibyl Kempson

An original work created for the night that is part incantation and contains evil children, ghosts, past lives and call and response in a long forgotten language.
