This, Melissa James Gibson

• The first production follows four friends in their late 30s as they experience love, loss, remorse and doubt. The confusion of the characters is executed with “wit and melancholy comedy” to create a play that explores middle age.

Middletown, Will Eno

• Play number two was inspired by Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. The inhabitants of Middletown are extremely candid with their deepest fears and secrets. The thought-provoking script examines the anxieties we face through vignettes exploring the beauty and horror of life.

Marisol, José Rivera

• The final play follows Marisol, living in New York City, and how a subway attack changes the course of her life. The work explores a parallel universe where social injustices are brought to light through a world revolution.
