SING OUT

A gay men's chorus with countless participation ribbons under their belts. A lesbian chorus more famous for potlucks than performances. When two rival choirs are forced to merge, their mission of inclusion goes ass over tits.

WE RIDE

It’s the summer of ’86. Top Gun has just come out. Halley’s Comet has just left the vicinity. Hands Across America is inspiring people to hold hands…across America. And four young metalheads — ie. the Party Lords — have just graduated high school and are reckoning with the intimidating prospect of leaving adolescence behind forever. Before the reckoning, though, The Last Hurrah! WE RIDE, is a dirtbag picaresque accompanying the Party Lords on the road trip to end all road trips as they criss-cross the country following Whiplash — their favorite British thrash-metal band — on a summer tour before plunging headlong into the rest of their unfathomable lives.

CHAMPAGNE SUPERNOVAS

 

Following the rise and indiscriminate demise of the genius designers, models, editors, photographers, patrons, gossips, ravers, sadomasochistic demons, and suicidally beautiful muses that invaded the fashion world in the 1990’s with just enough rope to hang themselves (and revolutionize an industry!)  McQueen. Blow. Jacobs. Sui. Moss. Campbell. Meisel. Talley. A fever dream with impeccable tailoring.

THE EXORCIST

Angela Rance believes something is very wrong in her home. Plagued by increasingly frightening nightmares, she isn't the only one in her family suffering: her husband Henry is slowly losing his mind, while their older daughter spends all of her time locked in her room and the younger one believes she hears strange noises coming from inside the walls. Desperate, she turns to Father Tomas Ortega -- the progressive leader of their suburban Chicago parish -- setting him on a collision course with old school Vatican soldier Father Marcus Brennan, as all their fates become entangled in a battle against an ancient force of evil.

DIVINE INTERVENTION 

Fifty years ago, a ragtag band of radical nuns in combat boots, wild-haired priests and their gonzo friends became accomplished cat-burglars in an effort to sabotage the war in Vietnam. They napalmed the files in city squares. They traded blows with J. Edgar Hoover. They did everything they could to destroy the war machine.  This podcast explores a bizarre time in American history when patriotic radicals took on every other institution that dared stand in their way, and showed us, briefly, what we could still become.

USE YOUR DELUSION

 

Man Man frontman, Ryan Kattner, didn’t want to be sleeping on hotel room floors 15 years into making music, but he doesn’t have a choice. Starting over as an opening act under the name Honus Honus, he searches for the joy in making music with the people he loves. This enduring task is a hustle, and pressure for any kind of success looms in each new city and on each new stage, as he tries to win over an audience—one song at a time.

THESE PAPER BULLETS

EVANSTON SALT COSTS CLIMBING

A world premiere by Pulitzer finalist Will Arbery

Winters in Evanston, Illinois, are brutal and it's getting more and more expensive to keep the roads clear. As salt truck drivers Peter and Basil battle one storm after another, Maiworm, the Assistant Director of Public Works, weighs the costs of a groundbreaking de-icing technology. It's a decision that will test her allegiance to urban planning pioneer, Jane Jacobs, for whom she named her own daughter, and impact the lives and livelihood of her employees. EVANSTON SALT COSTS CLIMBING is a heartbreakingly funny new play about climate and change.

I SAW MY NEIGHBOR ON THE TRAIN AND I DIDN'T EVEN SMILE

A world premiere by Suzanne Heathcote, show runner for season 3 of KILLING EVE.

 

This is Rebecca’s life: she wakes up, eats a sensible breakfast, wraps herself in three layers, drives to the train station, commutes to her bookkeeping job in the city, watches the clock, goes home, cooks dinner for her domineering mother, watches TV, and falls asleep grieving for her dead dog. Every day is the same as the next until Rebecca’s underachieving brother begs her to take care of her troubled niece—and she does what she always does—she lets it happen. In an unforgivingly bitter month, three generations of women with nothing in common, except a deeply buried ache, try to keep the cold away.
