WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Previews February 17th and 18th at 7pm. This year's Thicker Than Water includes three one-acts, three shorts, and an original song cycle - the company's largest, most ambitious production yet. Bike Wreck, by Qui Nguyen, directed by John Gould Rubin A rookie to the world of Chinese food delivery learns the rules of the game. Group, by Annie Baker, directed by Alex Timbers An aspiring author tries to quit her writer's group. Neurosis ensues. And The Baby Makes Three by Courtney Brooke Lauria, directed by Melissa Kievman A young wife, traumatized by miscarriage, gets advice on how to cope from her home appliances. Rob by Sam Forman, directed by Marlo Hunter Dumped for an obnoxiously attractive, compulsively masturbating actor, a young singer-songwriter desperately tries (and fails) to restart his life. Triage by Sharyn Rothstein A man watches his wife choke to death in a hospital lobby while the American medical system points and laughs. A comedy. The Roosevelt Cousins, Thoroughly Sauced by Michael Lew, directed by Moritz von Steulpnagel A historical short about a young FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt at a polio clinic in Georgia. Drunk. Songs: The Jamal Lullabies by Emily Conbere, directed by RJ Tolan Four high-school girls eulogize the no-account drug dealer they loved, in song.
