Small

Directed by Jessi D. Hill

Where does a bullied 12 year-old who’s all of 4’6” and 70 lbs go to find a place where he can be strong, powerful, respected?  On the back of a thoroughbred racehorse, where being small is of the highest value. But when that SMALL kid begins to grow, what lengths will he go to stay on the track?

Robert Montano shares a wild autobiographical ride about the wears of childhood, family, and the misunderstood life of being a jockey. Nearly ravaged by addiction in order to stay “SMALL,” Montano ignites complex and universal themes of struggle and sacrifice to pursue a passionate dream. A Rocky story of the racetrack, SMALL is about a boy transforming into a man by following his heart.

Talk To Me

Centers around Graham, a 12 year-old boy on the autism spectrum, who makes friends with the Siri app on his Mom’s iPhone. Whereas other kids don’t understand Graham, Siri is able to answer any of Graham’s questions, lets him have conversations at his own pace and is patient with him when he asks the same questions more than once. It’s through his interactions with Siri that others are able to see another side to Graham — allowing him to make new friends, gain a new level understanding in his relationship with his mother and eventually change his entire school.

Date Of A Lifetime

In the pressurized few minutes of a speed date, two singles suggest to each other what they think their entire lives would be like if they allowed their brief tête-à-tête to go beyond the “switch partners” bell. Competing comical and fraught visions of the future leave them wondering if the person they have just met is the Date from Hell or the Date of a Lifetime.

Book and lyrics by Carl Kissin, Music by Robert Baumgartner, Jr.

GET ON YOUR KNEES

by Jacqueline Novak
directed by John Early

Comedian Jacqueline Novak’s GET ON YOUR KNEES is the most high-brow show about blow jobs you’ll ever see. Novak spins her material on the femininity of the penis and the stoicism of the vulva into an unexpectedly philosophical show that’s part feminist outcry, part coming-of-age tale of triumph. Ira Glass calls it a “nearly Talmudic dissection of a subject. Really funny and just really like nothing else.”

Opening Night: December 14, 2019
