by Lauren Yee

Freshman year at college is hard when your roommate is weird, you’re feeling homesick, and a hook-handed serial killer is slashing girls’ throats. But if Lexi can discover what really happened to her high school best friend on that car ride to the movies, everything will be okay. In this existential slasher comedy, we’re reminded of the price we pay when we stop listening and give in to distraction. Outstanding World Premiere Play, 2015 Theatre Bay Area Awards.

Más

by Milta Ortiz
Experimental Theatre



Más is a docudrama about the dismantling of Tucson Unified School District’s Mexican American Studies program or MAS. This cultural conflict is brought to life in an abstract sweat lodge where dancers represent the Mexican deities of life’s natural forces. Más engages the audience in the debates around the passage in 2010 of Arizona House Bill 2281, which effectively banned the MAS program. The play’s balance of poetry and reenactment captures the soul of the movement as well as telling a contemporary story of community.

by Susan Glaspell
Experimental Theatre



The Glaspell Project consists of two one-act plays by Susan Glaspell: Trifles (1916) and Woman’s Honor (1918). Glaspell was a co-founder of the Provincetown Players, a source for new plays and playwrights in the early the 20th century. Trifles was inspired by a murder trial. It centers on two women who understand their neighbor better than the men investigating her crime. Woman’s Honor is a satirical comedy exploring the hypocrisy surrounding the concept of protecting a woman’s honor.
