Eve's Version by Deborah Lubar - March 17 & 18 at 7:30 pm, March 19 at 2:00 pm
With her usual wit and outrageousness, Lubar appears as an aging, no-nonsense Eve who remembers the pain and beauty of her growing consciousness, and recounts with great humor and compassion her complex relationships with Adam, Snake, God, and the garden itself.
The Really Big Wedding Dress by Julia Rold - March 13 & 16 at 7:30 pm, March 17 & 18 at 9:30 pm
This one-act, directed by Eve Muson is a loving theatrical send-up of country music! When pretty Lorrie Jean Poole still can't get a man, she finds there's no problem that the right dress won't solve.
Media Noche/Midnight Sandwich (formerly God Smells Like a Roast Pig on a Summer's Day)March 15 at 7:30 pm
Elliot Norton award winning playwright Melinda Lopez returns for one special performance! This new version of last season's sell-out show is directed by Betsy Carpenter. In this one-woman show, Lopez explores her relationship with Cuban History, contemporary politics, and bad 70's rock and roll. The multi-talented Lopez plays over 10 characters-- from her great grandmother to Fidel Castro.
