The Most Fleeting of All
Packed up and ready to go, with less than an hour left to inhabit her family home, a woman looks back on the deeply private miracles and tragedies of her life there. A meditation on loneliness, renewal and the daily--often invisible--infiniteness of spirit that motherhood requires. The Most Fleeting of All is written by Gia Marotta and performed by Rae C. Wright
Very Different People
Could life be improvised? Stella and Christine are somewhere, trying to figure out who they are. Very Different People is written/performed by Barbara Cassidy and Amie Hartman.
The true story of Benedetta Carlini, a seventeenth century nun charged with being a false mystic. This is the first written record of a lesbian relationship. Vile Affections is written by Vanda.

Quincy, Illinois is house bunk on top of house - hiding something deep underneath and in between - where people become animals and words beat their wings against eyelashes. Two friends who've switched houses steal a chicken, that's needed for the ark to escape the flood. To replace the chicken and reverse the deluge, one of them will have to take the fowl's place. Written by Krista Knight, and directed by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins.
In The Evening
How do we witness the act of listening? What does listening look like? Featuring Keith Biesack, K.J. Holmes, Myles Kane and David Moss.
