      Synopsis and Cast Information:

      "And Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens" is the first known Tennessee Williams play set in the gay world. It is the story of a New Orleans transvestite trying to make a life for herself with a brutish and exploitative sailor while suffering from "the specter of loneliness." It is a funny and touching play written in 1957 and first produced in 2004.

      Cast:
      * Candy Delaney - Nate Gray
      * Karl - Kaseem Bristow
      * Lvin Krenning - Bradley Leboef
      * Jerry Johnson- Ryan Makely
      * Musical Accompanist- Lilah Shreeve

      "In The Remarkable Rooming House of Madame Le Monde," a mysteriously paralyzed man named Mint moves around his attic by swinging from hooks as he prepares for the arrival of his old friend. Teatime turns into torment and takes a bizarre route of disorientation and distortion. Written late in his life, this savage comedy is set in a seedy attic in London and highlights author's experiments with anti-mimetic dramaturgy, dramatic allegories, and comic horror.

      Cast:
      * Mint - John-Michael Lyles
      * Hall - Evan Pearson
      * Madame Le Monde- Samantha Steinmetz
      * Boy - Seth Loeb

      "The Pink Bedroom" elicits a moment between lovers wrestling with their intimate decisions. A man and his mistress meet in the setting where they've conducted their 10-year affair and each blame the other for the disintegration of their relationship. The beauty of monogamy lies in the choice - it is a mutually agreed upon commitment of fidelity that rivals animal instinct to follow our desires freely. The Pink Bedroom is an unraveling of choices made when fidelity fails to accommodate all it promised and infidelity prevails.

      Cast:
      * Woman- Joslyn Defreece
      * Man- Jonathon Gabrielson
      * Ensemble- Alexandra O'Halloran, Amanda Ebert, Polina Ionina, Giacomo Rocchina, *Ashtain Rothchild, *Britton Smith
      *Choreography
