Annapurna

by Sharr White

Annapurna

Twenty years ago Emma walked out on Ulysses in the middle of the night, taking their young son with her. That’s given Ulysses two decades to write his magnum opus, perfect his naked cooking techniques, and move into a dingy trailer with a phone-eating dog. But when Emma hears that he’s also battling for his life, she returns to hash out the best and worst of their marriage, and the mysterious circumstances of the night she left. Annapurna is a hilarious, heartbreaking look at the enormous power of forgiveness.

The Nether

by Jennifer Haley

The Nether

Morris has been assigned to investigate rumors of bizarre and terrifying behavior in The Nether, an online virtual realm where technology can realistically simulate all five of our senses. As her investigation takes her deeper and deeper into this mysterious world, she’s forced to face truths about herself that she never knew existed. The Nether is a chilling look into an inevitable future, one that asks: can morality and laws be enforced in a world that doesn’t actually exist.

The Flick

by Annie Baker

The Flick

Set in a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, home to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state, The Flick follows the hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking stories of three mismatched employees. As they pick up trash, bitch about their bosses, and critique the films that play at their ill-attended cineplex, the trio’s own funny and fraught dramas play out in the empty aisles. But unlike the films that flicker from the projection booth, these dramas have real-world consequences. With Baker’s finely-tuned ear for dialogue and her astute comic eye, The Flick is a laughter-filled cry for connection and authenticity.

The Angry Brigade

by James Graham

The Angry Brigade

Young anarchists try to bring down the Establishment. The police try to stop them. Push to the left, push to the right. Push far enough and you’ll be surprised who you’ll meet. Based on real events in 1970s Britain, The Angry Brigade is a thrilling, funny, theatrical explosion of two halves. Be ready for one of the most compelling plays in Third Rail’s history.
