1000 Proms

Synopsis:
the story of Sally Carruthers, a seventeen-year-old Born Again Southern Baptist living with her mother in South Carolina in the mid-1970's. In her words, and through her possibly-unreliable perspective, Sally relates the events of the days leading up to her senior high school prom-which happen to coincide with the events of the Rapture as described in the Biblical book of Revelations. Equal parts Flannery O'Connor, Carrie and Seventeen Magazine, 1000 Proms is a cutting, humorous and timely commentary on current religious, political and sexual thinking.

Argument, The

Synopsis:
The Argument is a unique multimedia theatrical experience that imaginatively depicts the issues raised nationally by the Katrina disaster. It investigates how we deal with death in America: through denial and abstraction, foregoing grieving in favor of a relentless optimism. The audience moves throughout the space as scenes are illuminated by the cast of more than twenty actors, a live jazz band, and video projections. The Argument is the story of twin sisters living in an imaginary version of New Orleans, who are separated by death when the city floods. Mia, burdened with guilt for having survived her sister, sets out into the post-disaster landscape to try to provide her sister with the life she never had. The show contains nudity, and is intended for adults only.

Billy Witch

Synopsis:
Definitely not a typical summer camp! In Gregory S. Moss's Billy Witch, newcomer Oliver encounters the possessed pubescence of his fellow campers at the Blue Triangle Nature Fun Time Summer Camp. Along with fireside sing-a-longs, Vagina Cephalopada, and WAY too perky counselors lurking behind every tree, Oliver discovers just how monstorous the mutations of adolescence can be.

punkplay

Synopsis:
A history of America in the 1980s, an idiosyncratic genealogy of punk rock music, and a personal narrative of growing up as an outsider, punkplay is a mix tape tribute to the excesses and energy of adolescence. Mickey, a thirteen-year-old suburban misfit, is befriended by an angry runaway named Duck. Together, the boys attempt to reinvent themselves using punk rock, but as reality threatens to crash in on them, their fabricated world of amped-up music and shocking band names becomes just as oppressive as the society they're desperate to reject.
