The first play of the night, It's Just Coffee takes place at Doubleshots Coffee, a multinational coffee chain, lead by a cast of passionate baristas and customers debating the ethical dilemma of the 'Ghetto Latte' - - a customized-by-the-customer coffee drink.

The second one-act is a classic piece of modern theatre--'dentity Crisis. Written by Christopher Durang, the show is a fast-paced, dark comedy about a highly dysfunctional family centering on preteen Jane.

The family must deal with severe issues that beg the question 'if you had a secret to hide what would you do to keep it hidden?'
