The Fierce Urgency of Now
by Doug DeVita
Troubled-yet-talented advertising art director Kyle struggles to find himself amid the inner turmoil of his work environment with the help of an unlikely ally: copywriter Dodo, a living legend from the ‘Mad Men’ era. Set within the halls of a storied ad agency, The Fierce Urgency of Now exposes the precarious nature of power and the limitations that come with the stereotypes we place both on others and ourselves.


February 19, 2pm
The Family Steering Committee
by Steve Karp
The Family Steering Committee is about a group of people who all lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The group demands a national investigation into the 9/11 attack at a time when such an investigation was opposed by the American government. While the play is based on real events, it is a thoroughly imagined presentation that resonates with historical relevance.
