Plato’s Gooncave by Allyson Dwyer – April 13 & 14
Plato was reborn in the 1980s and grew up on a steady diet of badass cyberpunk. Now it’s 2024 and he’s a gooner trapped in his gooncave. Can Plato find the courage to escape… does he even want to?

Birdigo by Elijah Guo and Rivers Duggan – April 9 & 14
Chirpy Hedren is the avian starlet of Hitchcock’s “The Birds”, masterfully cawing and pecking at helpless humans in Bodega Bay. But what happens when she wants to spread her wings and take on a leading romantic role of her own? A chance encounter with the brooding thespian Quacky Stewart provides a glimpse into the transcendent transformation that arises when feathers intertwine.

Fyre Fest was so fun!!! by Catherine Weingarten – April 14
Fyre Fest Was So Fun!!! is a high energy wild comedic play in progress that’s a mashup of the failed Fyre festival and Waiting for Godot. Two hot influencers try and fail to hit on men and figure out the point of living all while waiting for Fyre Fest. When they meet two non influencer men, they are forced to confront if they can really connect with society.
Directed by Will Steinberger
