About the Plays

Two Point Oh / by Jeffrey Jackson / Monday, April 29 at 7:00pm

A thrilling play that questions the limits of technology, and the reality of existence. Though Elliot leads the world in software development, he dwells far back in the ranks of husbands.But when he dies in a plane crash, a mysterious disk appears in his wife Melanie’s pile of mail. When loaded into a computer, Elliot seemingly springs back to life in the virtual world, sustained by software he had written.

Gidion’s Knot / by Johnna Adams / Monday, May 6 at 7:00pm 

Gidion’s Knot by Johnna Adams is an exploration of loss and art. There are some things that just aren’t expected after the death of a child. One of those is a parent-teacher conference. When Corryn shows up for her scheduled appointment, Heather uses every stalling technique in her teacher handbook until she finally reveals why Corryn’s child was suspended the day before he killed himself.

Hell: Paradise Found / by Seth Panitch / Monday, May 13 at 7:00pm

Recently deceased lawyer Simon Ackerman suddenly finds himself desperate to get into Hell, which, God forbid, turns out to be the better place to both visit and spend Eternity. Struggling against the demons before him as well as the demons within, Simon encounters other proud and famous denizens of Hell. At the end of his journey, Simon finds himself face to face with the most timeless conundrum of all- what do you do when you are finally being held accountable for your actions on Earth, being held accountable to a completely different set of standards, and most importantly- where do you truly wish to end up when you leave it?
