The Malicious Basement (in collaboration with) 

The Opportunity Theatre Company presents: MAINTENANCE

Welcome to Chad Blue's Technicolour Workshop! Where we learn those secret inner workings of that pesky family home computer-system! We’ll see how best to stop people from spying on your Cummings and goings across cyber-space! Come see how our beloved host, Mr. Chadwick Blue, has some hidden secrets of his own. Set in a television studio, the show isn't the only thing being watched and those keeping their Eye on the status quo know that it's not only the computers that need to be maintained. A play in two acts about power, gender, abuse and systematic entrapment, Maintenance is a horror-comedy dripping with gore and pomposity

Marissa Blair presents:TRIPTYCH

TRIPTYCH is a shocking 3-piece postdramatic meta-horror play that confronts the theatrical convention of commitment while drawing upon BDSM philosophies and techniques as a toolkit for performative discourse and staging.

Phase One: ANIMAL - An animal with a special ability gets stuck in a fan.

Phase Two: FURIES - The Greek Furies torment a man for his injustices toward women.

Phase Three: BOUND - A captor has his way with his victim.

Quagmire Production presents: HOW TO KILL YOUR BABY 101

How To Kill Your Baby: 101 is a one-woman show based on true life events depicting a new mother’s descent into Postpartum Hell.  The story bounces back and forth between a mother’s painful transition into motherhood and a university-style multimedia lecture, delivering real facts on how postpartum depression and psychosis, if left untreated, can eventually lead to desperate acts of self-harm, suicide and/or infanticide. For some, new motherhood can be a dream come true, but for this mother it is a nightmare from which she cannot wake up.
