Open: 10/20/16- Close: 11/20/16 MAD LOVE
Sloane Hudson, a wealthy, beautiful recent Ivy League graduate and product of the campus hook-up culture and frat basement pong tournaments, doesn't believe in love or marriage. She does, however, believe in babies and wants one soon so her tummy can bounce back and she can still wear a bikini. The problem is she needs a sperm donor who passes muster. Enter Brandon, who has all the right stats, but the wrong attitude. Brandon, meantime, has enough on his plate living with his brother Doug, who just fell in love with Katerina, the hooker from the Ukraine. Cabbage soup, a rare baseball card and a lizard named Pogo all play a part in this romantic comedy for cynical times.

Open: 10/20/16- Close: 11/05/16 THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW: STUMP SPEECHES
Writer/performer Clay McLeod Chapman believes in America. What it once was. What it can be again. And to make our nation great, everybody’s got to make sacrifices. Ancient sacrifices. In honor of the election year, the 19th season of The Pumpkin Pie Show praises politics with ballot-shredding tales of witch-hunting in the White House, interdimensional orgies in the Lincoln bedroom, draw-and-quartering Occupy protestors, and good ol’ fashioned mudslinging.

The Pumpkin Pie Show: Stump Speeches will be performed by Clay McLeod Chapman (Commencement and Hostage Song; The Boy at SXSW 2015; The Tribe Trilogy with Disney; The Amazing Spider-Man with Marvel Comics), Hanna Cheek (Mac Rogers’ Universal Robots and

Open: 10/20/16- Close: 11/05/16 THE RESISTIBLE RISE OF ARTURO UI
The play (from 1941) that predicted Trump, written by German playwright Bertolt Brecht.  In this election year, Arturo Ui is ripped from the headlines as a brash outsider with no political experience runs for office, takes over a party and rises to power.  Featuring eight actors playing over forty roles and a non-traditional space, the plays takes audiences on a theatrical roller coaster ride that rivals the best CNN has to offer.

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui is a play about a demagogue coming to power in a democratic state. Any resemblance to living persons is entirely coincidental. Written by Bertolt Brecht in 1941, Arturo is simultaneously a satirical explanation of the rise of nationalism in Germany and a warning against allowing the events of the 1930s to repeat themselves.
