Set in an abandoned theatre after what may or may not be a zombie apocalypse, Social Creatures examines what happens after the after. When what’s left of humanity is rapidly transforming into bloodthirsty beasts, to whom can a good neighbor turn? Strangers become friends, and friends swiftly become predators as the world crumbles, and in the end, somebody’s definitely getting eaten.

When Gabriela awakens to find her husband Benito has returned from a military assignment, their lust and frustration reach a boiling point, sending the couple down a corkscrewing slide of marital strife, sexual tension, and hostility. A Cat, a Coyote, and The Moon help weave Rivera’s story in language poetic and grounded, sensual and sardonic, all against the sweltering backdrop of a barren summer wasteland.

After a woman is rescued from a robbery, she promises her daughter’s hand to her savior in return. The young woman’s fairytale becomes anything but in this musically entrancing take on an old Chinese tale of innocence lost. With a boisterous chorus and a backdrop of a diverse and bustling Queens, New York; Charles Mee brings to life a beautifully lyricized story of bargaining and betrayal.

Running 6/5- 6/28
A small-town band sets off across the country for the gig of a lifetime. This indie-rock odyssey comes to a crashing halt, bringing their lead singer face to face with her lack of control and robbing her of her vision. Live music, sibling rivalry, young love, and the open road set the scene for this existential exploration of coming of age in broken vans and cheap motels.

White Suit Science
By Shawn Reddy
The legend surrounding the white suit and its most famous wearers—Mark Twain and Colonel Sanders—is the cornerstone of this ridiculous examination of the iconic Southern uniform. A team of suit-wearers and a pompous professorial faux academic lead us through the bastardized history of both the suit and our country, with chicken. Lots of chicken.
