HEART SHAPED UTERUS 
by Judith Leora
Tuesday, June 30, 8:00pm


Dani has just stepped into an absurd world of gibberish, cultish dating gurus, dementia and daunting statistics, where she learns that sometimes a skewed perspective gives the clearest view of all.

UNTITLED DEGRADATION PLAY
by Micheline Auger
Wednesday, July 1, 8:00pm

Girl meets boy, girl falls in love, girl turns into a Glorious Pig. 

THE VIOLET SISTERS
by Gina Femia
Thursday, July 2, 8:00pm


When Pam comes home to attend her father's funeral in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, she is greeted by an angry sister, a dilapidated house and a past she can't escape.

DINNER WITH FRENEMIES
by Cecilia Copeland
Friday, July 3, 8:00pm


Kori and Will are video game designers and best friends -- who can't stand each other's partners.  What was supposed to be a friendly dinner party has more traps, pitfalls, and unexpected levels than one of their games. 

BLOODY MARY
a one-act play
by Penny Jackson
Sunday, July 5, 2:00pm


Be careful for what you wish for during a Republican presidential fund raiser in Connecticut! The famous and beautiful Bloody Mary is summoned to interrupt with her ghoulish pranks, feminist ideals and a commitment to helping teenage girls attend Burning Man.

WORKS FOR ME
a one-act play
by Jerry Polner
Sunday, July 5, 2:00pm

 
Did that last temp job seem like the beginnings of a police state, or was it just your imagination?
 


UPON THE FRAGILE SHORE
by Caridad Svich
Sunday, July 5, 7:00pm


From Louisiana to Syria, Venezuela to Colorado, the Western Sahara to Nigeria, Boston to Malaysia -- a story of lives lived in the aftermath of tragedies. A play-conversation about everyday acts of heroism.


(Followed by a closing night reception!)
