Playwright: Kathy Hsieh
Three couples. Three time periods. One apartment. Grace and Jimmy are re-starting their lives again after being interned at Camp Minidoka during World War II. Walter tries to support his family by breaking the blacklist. Christina desperately searches for information about her husband after he leaves for the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001. Apartment B4 contains the intimate stories of ordinary people and how the lives of those who lived before provide lingering lessons for those who live today.
Playwright: Daniel Arreola
Title: Dome Light
Set against metropolitan living, two friends set out to test their self-worth... to each other and themselves. Travis and Veronica are two twenty-somethings dealing with the ups and downs of self-medication and the sociological norm per se. There's never a sober moment in this witty, crass, and hysterical look at what friends do to each other and what they don't want their friends to know.
$5 per reading, $9 for a 3-reading pass, or $12 for an all-fest pass.
