Attempting to drive to summer camp, a family is led astray by their GPS and into a challenging situation.

  • PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE by Bara Swain, directed by Valerie Adami

While Matilda is sitting Shiva for her beloved nine year old companion, an unexpected visitor gives her the courage to make a life-altering decision.

  • THE BLACK BOX (OR, HOW TO DIE HAPPY) by David Harms, directed by Sam French

Without insurance, after suffering a nervous breakdown, John James is forced to take a leave of absence from the church where he’s been rector for 25 years and convalesce in an unusual place. After reviewing his life and having several visitors from his life he decides there’s a sure-fire way to go out on a high note, and puts his idea to the test.

  • THE ROOFTOP PLAYS by Marlene Shyer, directed by Max Friedman (“Rooftop Buddha”, “Rooftop Thanksgiving”, “Rooftop Murder”)

A series of three ten minute plays set on a rooftop in a city. From murder for real estate, to memorials, to divvying up holiday attendance, you never know what is going on over your head.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors over 65 and children under 12.

Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30PM, and Sundays at 3PM. There will be a talk back with the playwrights directly after the Sunday matinees.
