This show is amazing! We were deeply moved by the actors vulnerable and sensitive presentation of their lives. The show is a wonderful examination of the struggles of being human.

We enjoyed it immensely! ... full review

Forgetting not Forgotten

This multimedia, multiple character is a edutainment solo show. A performer takes on the role as caregiver after her mothers diagnosis with Alzheimers, and as the neighborhood becomes gentrified her world falls apart.

#CANCELLED: The Play

Staying relevant is a full-time job, and the last thing you want to be is #Cancelled. A washed up child star. An up-and-coming music producer. An “influencer-by-accident”. What do they have in common? An internet scandal big enough to break them.
