Where the Air Meets the Water

Spring 2021

by Alexander Utz

directed by Bec Willett

cast: TBA

A pair of intersecting one-on-one plays for one actor and one audience member.

It's the third anniversary of AJ and Cara's friendship, and they've reached a fork in the road. Taking the form of conversational monologues about memories, aspirations, and art, the audience will walk with Cara or AJ through Chicago as they prepare to confront the future, whatever it holds.

Artemis Books and the Well-Meaning Man

Fall 2021

by Paul Michael Thomson

directed by Brittney Brown

cast: TBA

Regina (Reggie) runs a femme-centric feminist bookstore in Tucson, AZ. Artemis Books is a safe space for queer people, free expression, and womxn of all kinds. When her boss unexpectedly jumps ship, Reggie is stuck with a new-hire: straight, white, cisgender JJ. Workplace romances, existential anxieties, and some questionable spell casting abound as Reggie tries to reclaim her safe space. Does identity have to influence ideology? Does colonialism ever stop? And what in the actual hell is a “good guy”?
