THE DING DONGS, OR WHAT IS THE PENALTY IN PORTUGAL? by Brenda Withers
Directed By Daisy Walker
When a sweet-faced couple shows up on a suburban doorstep, an unsuspecting homeowner finds himself the victim of a surreal home invasion. Using wit and wordplay to mask a more sinister threat, the couple wages a battle over indigenous rights from the living room. An offbeat look at the cycle of violence that fuels our system of private property. With jokes. (Nov. 3 at 8pm; Nov. 5 at 8pm; Nov. 7 at 5pm; Nov. 10 at 8pm; Nov. 12 at 5pm; Nov. 13 at 8pm; Nov. 15 at 8pm; Nov. 17 at 5pm; Nov. 18 at 8pm; Nov. 20 at 2pm)
