LOUISA MAY INCEST by Carolyn Gage, directed by Marty Bongfeldt

FIFTH PLANET: Charts the friendship between two observatory workers as it waxes and wanes over the course of a year.

HERE WE GO: A short play about death by Caryl Churchill. A funeral party for a man with an adventurous past and a ginger cat that needs a home. Where is he now? Is his heart lighter than a feather? How did he die? And what happens to his friends?
