    THIS IS A PLAY
    written by Daniel MacIvor

    When you watch a play a world is created for you full of stories and characters. However, to find yourself listening in on the thoughts of the actors as they move about on stage can be mildly unsettling, startlingly revealing, and uproariously hilarious! Exposed to the turmoil of each actor’s inner thoughts, the evening’s true story will rise to the surface and you will discover why THIS IS A PLAY.

    ACTION
    written by Sam Shepard

    A friendly dinner during a seemingly apocalyptic winter finds JEEP, SHOOTER, LIZA & LUPE searching for community, looking for something to eat, trying to find where they left off reading in the book — some sort of ACTION to keep their stories moving forward! Oh, the surprises the dinner offers … join them around the table.
