"Since a failed attempt at living in New York, Nate’s been killing time--for a few years now--working at the dingy thrift store in his hometown. When a bomb threat is called in at the local high school and Nate’s younger sister Lindsay comes by looking for a ride, her company seems like the last thing he needs. But after a run-in with a girl from the past, Nate and Lindsay are both forced to consider whether they really know what it is they need. A comedy about the pain of being stuck."
Greg Keller will play Nate, Julie Jesneck will play Carol and Reyna De Courcy will play Lindsay.
The Furniture Fire
Written by Thomas Higgins
Directed by Jeremy Bloom
"In an empty house, a married couple, Clark and Jane, explains to the audience how they joined a cult, and found surprising solace in burning all of their earthly possessions in an attempt to burn away the painful memories they represent. Darkly witty on the surface, The Furniture Fire has tragic undertones and touches on themes of death, renewal, purging and burning away the past."
The cast will feature Birgit Huppuch as Jane, Marc Damon Johnson as Clark, Alenka Kraigher as Wanda and Stephen Bradbury as Martie."
