Clinically Negative (A Viral Comedy)

Synopsis:
a collectively-written new comedy about AIDS. The following description is from the show's press release: "Playwright Beau Willimon curates an evening of work by several playwrights dealing with the issue of AIDS. The result is Clinically Negative, a full length play in which each of the five contributing writers picks up where the previous writer left off. The result is a hysterically irreverent take on the experience of getting tested for HIV."

Farragut North

Synopsis:
Stephen Bellamy is a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age would envy. During a tight presidential primary race, Stephen's meteoric rise falls prey to the backroom politics of more seasoned operatives. FARRAGUT NORTH is a timely story about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it.

Spirit Control

Synopsis:
Adam Wyatt has the perfect family and a perfect record as an air traffic controller. But when the pilot of a small plane suffers a heart attack, Adam must talk a terrified passenger through an emergency landing. What happens next will link him inextricably to a woman he's never met, and set the life he once knew irrevocably adrift. Spirit Control is a chilling and mesmerizing look at how we navigate a crisis, and the demons that haunt us long after.
