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 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 . .
