6969

Synopsis:
Based on true events, 6969 is the tale of 16-year-old Mark and 14-year-old John, who meet in cyberspace and bond over religion, morality, and sex. Soon, John introduces Mark to a very naughty school girl, a rapist who thinks he's Jesus, and a sex-starved top secret agent. But after a number of grisly murders, Mark receives orders from the secret agent which make him question everything he knows. . .

Children At Play

Synopsis:
It's Morgan's first day at James Joyce Junior High School for Gifted and Talented Students, and she quickly befriends four fellow misfits: Chernobyl survivor Ana, struggling student Jeremy, and childhood friends Lacey and Lancelot. Sure, classes are hard, but they're nothing compared to dysfunctional families, constantly fluctuating sexuality, eating disorders, school violence, nuclear fallout, and -- most dangerous of all -- love. It's five outcasts versus adolescence as the years go by and their lives become more and more complicated and intertwined. Eight actors play multiple parts in this dark and resonant comedy about the perils and frustrations of growing up.

Funny Pain, The

Synopsis:
they don't call Mary Rochelle Douleur "Roach" for nothing - she's practically indestructible. With a disease that makes her unable to feel physical pain, Roach can fall down stairs, stick her fingers in electrical sockets, or scratch her eyeballs and still look up with a smile. But when she and her older sister Mary May become rival stand-up comediennes, they learn just how fine the line is between laughing and crying.

Let's Go

Synopsis:
Let's Go is an ensemble-created collage play exploring and responding to the themes, language, characters, and history of Samuel Beckett's defining masterpiece Waiting for Godot. As we struggle for patience in a rapidly-paced yet anxious contemporary era, what are we waiting for and why? What is the shared consciousness we know as reality, and what happens when our brains no longer adhere to it? As we investigate these questions-and invite audience members to be voyeurs into the exhilarating and odd process of creating a new theatre piece-we scream, we dance, we embrace Vaudeville, we stand to the right side of our left brains, we call our mothers. . .and we wait.

Standards of Decency 3: 300 Vaginas Before Breakfast

Synopsis:
Blue Coyote theater group commissioned eight of their favorite playwrights to create new short plays meditating on new media and pornography. Presented in a stripped-down style, the plays are raunchy, funny, and surprisingly tender. Is our pornutopia breaking down our capacities for empathy and reflective thought, for intimacy and sustained attention? Standards of Decency 3: 300 Vaginas Before Breakfast uses a very old medium to explore what the new media are doing to us, publicly and privately, for better and for worse, at the place where technology, sex, and relationships collide.

Townville

Synopsis:
Townville is a picture-perfect artist's community engineered for happiness, where everyone works hard by day to run the town, then makes art when the sun goes down. When Townville's enigmatic government requests a play to be performed for the highest authorities themselves, Townville's residents know they'd better put on a good show. As it becomes clear that secret-free Townville may in fact have a secret or two after all, a new theatre director arrives with a whole new vision for Townville's upcoming performance. And as Townville's population starts disappearing, life-or-death choices must be made if its residents want to live freely-or at all."
