The Aurora Project follows Constantine, a robot indistinguishable from human beings, and Nora, a genetically enhanced female explorer, as they begin an endless voyage across the uncharted universe. When Nora decides to go against Constantine's wishes and visit a strange new planet, she's quickly infected with an incurable illness. To delay losing the only person he loves to a gruesome death, Constantine takes it upon himself to suspend them both in cryo-freeze. Thus the pair begins a kind of chemically induced time warp spanning millions of years as they wait for the universe to get smarter and a cure for Nora's illness to be found.
Beautiful Monster is a new play depicting the final hours of the life of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. On the eve of her expected death, Mary, gripped by madness, is visited by the dead: her husband and Romantic poet Percy Shelley, their shared lover Lord Byron, and literary rival John William Polidori, author of the first known vampire fiction — fiction begun, along with Frankenstein, on that now famous night of ghost stories on the banks of Lake Geneva. As the clock ticks toward Mary's death, she recalls in a series of hallucinations her heart-wrenching confrontations with Percy's formidable mother and the tender friendship of her loving stepsister. She's even confronted by the monster she created.
Note: This show includes nudity and sexual content.
The Bigot tackles the most important issue of our time; it's intense, provocative, and sensitive all at once. Most importantly, it provides a much-needed spirit of hope, suggesting that even the most cynical among us can find common ground.
Jim is an equal opportunity bigot, intolerant on the basis of religion, politics, sexual orientation, gender, and ethnicity. He especially hates the lesbian couple next door: Paula and Aysha, an African-American. He hates their guts, and they hate him back. But "the bigot" is about to get the shock of his life, and so are viewers. Something happens that changes not only his life forever but also everybody around him.

Written by Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning playwright, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, and director John Patrick Shanley, The Dreamer Examines His Pillow examines one couple's attempt to find their way through the maze of love, lust, and art.

Told without the constraints of the linear narrative, James L. Menzies' Go Get the Axe is the absurdist story of one family's journey into the depths of madness, heavy drinking, and impending death — and the humor that can be found at rock bottom.
At the center of several interconnected stories are Jim and Jessica Drinkwine, siblings who were torn apart by one death, and just may be reunited by another. The Drinkwines have a familial euphemism for the mental illness that they're all inextricably tied to: they call it "The Shouters," an affliction that takes on many forms and faces and leaves no member unscathed. Some drink to fight it off. Some do worse.
Go Get the Axe weaves back and forth from past to present, from conscious to subconscious mind, from the living to the dead, and ultimately shows us that self-forgiveness and redemption may be possible in this life.

After running away from her recovery program, Willow comes crashing in on Audrey's safe space, hoping to find a place to stay.
