A Small Life (a vaudeville in 8 acts) 4/27 - 5pm, 5/3 - 4pm, written by Terry Amara Boero Meg is dying of lung cancer, and her daughters are trying to pull together the last months of their mother’s life, but what about Meg’s cigarettes? She needs them as they dance and sing her through the pain of her cancer. Should we laugh or cry - or perhaps get angry at the tobacco corporations who have produced this diversion to hide their duplicity and greed? A Small Life: a vaudeville in 8 acts elicits all three responses by juxtaposing a vaudeville show on a searing family drama. The play presents an array of contradictions and realities while never dropping a beat or stumbling during the soft shoe number.

Blood Under the Bridge 4/26 – 4pm, 5/4 – 5pm, written by Nara Dahlbacka What happens after the Snap? Blood under the Bridge is a full-length, one-act play set in the same home on the same New England campus as Albee’s classic play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, but forty years later. See how the world; the university; and the relationships in that house have changed. And, mostly, how they haven’t. Tonight brings an aging Martha back home after a long absence to confront the ghost of George and to play a final round of games with the house’s current inhabitants.

Nadleehi and the Coyote 4/26 – 7pm, 5/4 – 2pm, written by Patricia Reynoso The supernatural meets the ordinary in Nadleehi and the Coyote, a story of a Navajo mother who fails to keep her homosexual son safe from discrimination in their predominantly Christian town. She turns to Navajo legend for guidance.

Out of the Closet 4/27 – 2pm, 5/3 – 7pm, written by Laura Torello Faith, an in-your-face teen dressed in a leather jacket and boots, carrying on her back a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder (a combination of bipolar type one and schizophrenia), carries the audience through her story and experiences with doctors, misdiagnosis, hospitals, family,and the loss of a “normal” life. Through its own unique vocabulary, history, and medical lingo Out of the Closet exposes the audience to a culture and community it otherwise may never have known existed.
