Two new plays offer radically different takes on the search for redemption when IAMA Theatre Co. opens its 10th season with two company member-written world premieres.
In the fast-paced, edgy sci-fi comedy Sinner's Laundry, the residents of Newport Women's Correctional Facility have all mysteriously vanished. Jess and Sam are the only two inmates who remain — and they are locked in Rec Room No. 4 with nothing but some crappy board games and their imaginations. Waiting for Godot meets Orange Is the New Black meets the book of Revelations as they navigate their way towards salvation in this funny, poignant exploration of the power of redemption and the divinity within us all.
Meanwhile, engines and heart rates explode on a journey towards redemption in the haunting and provocative Redline. A father's moment of road rage along a frigid eastern Sierra highway shattered his relationship with his family forever and the ripples through the years.
