The Death of… (the one man show)
“My dad can beat up your dad!” There is a reason it is one of the earliest schoolyard taunts. If our parents are our first heroes, what can we learn about Superman by looking at our dads? What can we learn about our dads by looking at Superman? And what happens to our heroes when we grow up?
Rookie Haunting (two person show)
An inexperienced ghost floats into a bar. Is it the beginning of a cosmic joke, or are the secrets of the universe about to be revealed to a disgruntled bartender? Adapted from H.G. Wells’ popular short The Story of the Inexperienced Ghost, this play questions our assumptions about ghosts and the afterlife.
