An unexpecting mother in a fever dream incited by the greek god Pan, dislodges an inert mass and releases chaotic self destructive energies to facilitate a rebirth, a return to the body.

Witch & The…
by Scout Davis
Witch & the…dramatizes a singular scene on repeat from a middle school production of Lion, Witch and The Wardrobe in 2008 where I played Edmund and Tiffany Trump played the White Witch in Calabasas, California. This public meditation examines and exorcizes my relationship with Tiffany and our estrangement these past years.

Ice Cold: Crossroads of America
by Patrick Vermillion and Teddy Dinner
Great news! Patrick and Teddy have written a 10-hour, five-act play. The problem? They only have 20 minutes. Tonight they’ll do their best to condense their epic work, Ice Cold: Crossroads of America, into a delicious bite-sized piece. Can a play that was written to feature car chases, knife fights, actual helicopters and a functioning hot tub be performed with a budget of 100 dollars? Of course, why not?
Written and directed by: Teddy Diner and Patrick Vermillion
Performances by: Jesse Koehler, Ethan Graham-Horowitz, Isabella Carter, Mckenzie Anderson, Austen Halpern-Graser, Melody Cao and Ethan Beach
