Mud Blue Skyby Marisa Wegrzyn
Air travel was once considered glamorous, but when three middle-aged flight attendants reunite during a layover near O’Hare Airport, it’s enough to make anyone question a life in “the friendly skies.” Joined by an unlikely fourth companion, a teenage boy adrift on his prom night, the women are poised on the brink of looking back and moving ahead. In this wickedly funny new comedy, playwright Marisa Wegrzyn (CBS’s The Mentalist, winner of the Wasserstein Prize) offers a tender yet hilarious look at work, motherhood, missed connections, and how the small kindnesses we afford each other can inspire one another to grab onto life before it flies by.
“…a delightfully devilish new play.” – Baltimore Post-Examiner

The Monster-Builderby Amy Freed
A maniacal scheme of fantastical proportions lurks deep inside mega-architect Gregor Zubrowski’s post-modern steel and glass structures. His commanding celebrity and curious creative process titillates both design professionals and patrons alike. It is only after he cruelly steals a career-making project that two fledgling architects finally dare to challenge this monster-builder at his own game. Expect the unexpected from this absurdly funny, viciously smart new comedy by nationally renowned Pulitzer Prize finalist, Amy Freed, whose work has been seen locally at Berkeley Rep, Cal Shakes and A.C.T.

“...a fast-paced riff on ambition, selling out, artistic pretension, and the subjectivity of taste...” ~ The Portland Mercury
