Reverse/Loop/Repeat by Stephanie Joy Del Rosso

Dates June 18-21 & 25-28

“Let’s do that thing where we don’t worry or sting or fuck up or miss or lose or get sad!”. Stephanie Joy Del Rosso’s short play Reverse/Loop/Repeat is a story everyone can relate to. It’s a story of love, loss, and the things that connect and define us. But in an unusual twist, the story of the dissolution of a couple’s relationship is told in reverse, from the end to the beginning. Using heightened expressive language and movement, this piece delves into what draws us together, and what tears us apart. This workshop production of this never before produced play is presented with the two actors trading roles each evening.

The Norwegians by C. Denby Swanson

Dates June 18, 20, 25 & 27

“We are gangsters, the nice kind.” In C Denby Swanson’s The Norwegians we are drawn into a world of intrigue and frozen ice, of burning desire and dark comic mania. Two southern transplants in Minnesota, each spurned in love, do the only logical thing and hire the two nicest hit-men to take care of things. But as the stakes increase the world begins to slide sideways and it may be that nothing is as it appears.

Edgar & Annabel by Sam Holcroft

Dates June 19, 21, 26 & 28

Sam Holcroft’s politcal drama Edgar amp; Annabel peers into a world where an Orwellian government is listening to your every word. Two young revolutionaries are thrust together in a wire-tapped house to maintain the cover of the perfect suburban couple. As political and interpersonal tensions grow, the facade beings to crack, and Nick and Marianne are caught between the mission and their desires.

Staged Reading of New Work by resident playwright Alexandra Schaffer
