Frozen Fluid

In a Mythic Antarctica (but one resonant with our current climate crisis), two scientists study glaciers and whales. When a third phytoplankton scientist arrives—Tay, who identifies as nonbinary—Herman and Terra begin to confront their own ideas of gender and their control of the natural world. As things unravel for all three of them, a new world begins to take shape—one where gender, identity, religion, climate, and time itself become new, expansive, and free of human interference.

Lottie Plachett Took A Hatchet

Lottie Plachett Took A Hatchet

Justin Elizabeth Sayre, a fixture of the Downtown Cabaret Scene in New York, has written a hilarious, scintillatingly campy play full of axe murders, sexual depravity and the installation of a toilet. Based on the infamous murder case of Lizzie Borden: Lottie, an unsuspecting spinster, stands accused of brutally murdering her father and stepmother. As the case unfolds, Lottie must confront the truth of what happened that fateful day and what, if any, part she had to play in it. But did Lottie Plachett actually take up a hatchet? Could a woman actually be capable of such a heinous crime? That's for the audience and the jury to decide as this camp comedy unfolds.

The Cowards

The Cowards

The Cowards is Ryan O’Connor’s completely fresh adaptation of Nöel Coward’s classic play “Hay Fever.” In this unapologetically queer version, the four members of a dysfunctional chosen family unit (The Cowards) have each invited a surprise guest to their Provincetown, Massachusetts home for the weekend. What ensues is a biting, wicked comedy in which a batch of wildly unpleasant people make for uproarious entertainment.

8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The Laramie Project

The Laramie Project

In October 1998, Matthew Shephard, a college student at the U of Wyoming was kidnapped, beaten, tied to a fence and left to die. His crime? Being gay. Kaufman, Fondakowski and members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half. This play is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. We see a town caught in the cross-hairs of a hate crime and media frenzy.
