Testing by Mary Lynn Owen (December 4th- 2pm)
A year after Father's death, Mother sends an urgent email to her adult children, summoning them home to collect their things. In a room cluttered with family relics - clothes, photos, forgotten toys - Mother, Sister, Brother, and Grandpa, an interracial family, collide with the past and present, face the truth of each other's lives, and choose what to keep and what to throw away.


Ezekial's Wheel by Addae Moon (December 4th- 5pm)
A play about prophecy. What is to come, what has happened and what is happening at this moment. An Afro-futuristic play focused on the life of a boy living in a fate he didn't have a say in.



Oh! To be Pure Again by Kira Rockwell (December 5th- 2pm- VIRTIUAL)
In this brand new musical, follow a pair of extraordinary siblings on a journey through time and memory as they unravel the mystery of their parents’ death while untangling the mystery of their own identities.
