WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Friday, October 20, 7pm Passage By Christopher Chen Directed by Saheem Ali

A riff on A Passage to India, E.M. Forster's eerily prescient 1924 novel on the British occupation of India, Passage recasts the novel as a minimalist contemporary fable on the clash of two imagined cultures, creating an ominous meditation on perception, prejudice, and power.

Saturday, October 21, 7pm Poor Edward By Jonathan Payne Directed by Tyne Rafaeli

Opal and Eddie are together. She'd call it survival, he'd call it penance. As night descends around their hovel, they grapple to find a way to forge a new life. Inspired by the destruction of a homeless community in San Jose, California, Poor Edward tells a darkly theatrical story of intimacy and survival, and the seductive power of hope.

Sunday, October 22, 3pm All the Roads Home By Jen Silverman Directed by Lee Sunday Evans

Three generations of headstrong women must discover the threads of unspoken secrets, shared dreams, and unflinching determination that bind them together. A funny, poignant play with live music about legacy, sacrifice, and fighting for your dreams.
