MYSTERIOUS CONNECTIONS by Peter Hardy
Isobel and Pamela are two lonely women that are instantly drawn to one another from the first time they meet — they soon become so close that Isobel is able to enter into Pamela’s dreams, which leads the two of them into a journey through their own haunted pasts.  The World Premiere of a fantasy-drama about love, nightmares and moving from darkness into light, this play was one of a few chosen (from a thousand submissions ) for development at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center’s National Playwrights’ Conference.  (Advisory: Sexual situations and disturbing imagery.)
STRAY DOGS by Matthew Myers
A comedy-romance about cops and criminals — sort of like Quentin Tarentino except a whole lot sweeter.  This is the World Premiere of the play that won the 2013 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award.  (Advisory: Rough language and onstage violence.)
SWIMMING WITH JELLYFISH by Katie Grant Shalin

The Professional World Premiere of a play that takes a moving and funny look at that classic American institution, the family – a mother and father trying to heal themselves and move past old wounds and disappointments, while their two almost-grown children are facing the prospect of moving out on their own.  If you grew up with a mother or father, or a sister or brother, you’re going to see yourself somewhere in this play.
