Bone Close To My Brain, A

Synopsis:
What are the limits of brotherly love? and what do they have to do with the 32 bones huddling tight inside your mouth? Through spare dialogue and childlike illustrations, a man describes his relationship with his younger brother -- who is both brilliant and mentally ill -- and the heartbreaking decision he has to make.

Clementine in the Lower 9

Synopsis:
When Hurricane Katrina tore through New Orleans, Clementine's family scattered to the winds. Nine months later, they are reunited and anxious to rebuild -- but a new storm is brewing. Her husband has arrived from Houston with a strange young girl, who just may be a prophet, and the ghosts of those lost are awakening. Set to the jazz and blues of the Lower Ninth Ward, this modern retelling of Agamemnon delves into the agony and hope that come after the storm.

Promageddon

Promageddon
the end is near: the apocalypse and what might come after is the subject of this collaboration of five playwrights that will be performed by Actors theatre of Louisville's acting apprentice Company. From the Book of Revelation to 2012, prophecies about the end of days have existed since the beginning of time. In the end, these five playwrights, all of whom have had work produced in previous Humana Festivals, envision scenarios ranging from a zombie infestation to a bunker beneath a high school
