ISLA AZÚCAR (workshop)  (Jan. 7 - Jan. 20): From the mind of Alejandro Tey (Jeff Nominated, Chad Deity) comes an immersive theater-game hybrid that places audiences in the shoes of an immigrant during Castro’s Cuban Revolution. Choices must be made as dramatic scenes play out, inciting a cascade of consequences that affect not only the plot, but your fellow theater-goers. What or who will you be willing to out or abandon to stay alive?

 
 

Non Player Character

By Walt McGough

 

Directed by Beth Wolf

Comic and poignant, Non-Player Character is a timely, boldly theatrical exploration of the games we play and who’s winning. With themes of “Gamer Gate” aspiring video game designer Katja and her longtime friend Trent are an unstoppable team against animated monsters in the virtual worlds. But after a humiliating falling-out, Trent marshals an army of internet trolls to wage real-life war against his former friend.

An Oak Tree

By Tim Crouch

Two Actors. One has rehearsed the play. The second has never even read it.  Performed by a different person each night, the second actor will discover the play and their role at the same time as you do.

In this MIDWEST PREMIERE, An Oak Tree asks, how do we transform our world in order to survive our pain? How do we create our own reality? Anything can happen in this play that illuminates the magic of theater – a cheap trick and a genuine spell all at once.
