Open: 11/09/18- Close: 12/08/18 CONSUMPTION
A mysterious German doctor; a dying woman; stoned teenagers; a showbiz marriage on the rocks; an itinerant fortune teller; a lost episode of TV’s Dragnet. Loosely based on the true-ish story of Elena Hoyos and Count Carl Von Cosel, five disparate but intertwining couples fly through time, space, and planes of existence to ponder the nature of love.

Consumption is a site specific, experiential and immersive work that will play for an audience of just thirty people per performance. The play takes place in a beautifully restored 100-year old Victorian home where the first floor, including two parlor spaces and a ballroom will be utilized.

Produced by Mason Holdings

Performed by Devin Burnam & Tracy Weller with scenic design by Christopher Swader and Justin Swader.

Venue:
Beverly Social Club : 1016 Beverley Road
Open: 11/07/18- Close: 11/18/18 DURST CASE SCENARIO: MIDTERM MADNESS
 Will Durst is acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country. He’s patched together a quilt of a humorous career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice-overs and stand-up into a riotous patchwork of funny comedy humor. The Oregonian called him, “The thinking man’s comedian." Author of 4 books, Durst has told jokes in 16 countries, racked up 800+ television appearances, released 5 CDs and despite blistering reproach, continues to squeeze ketchup on his bratwurst.   

Durst’s one-man show, The Durst Case Scenario received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike in its run at the Marsh in San Francisco, and on tour to 30 cities in 6 states.

Venue:
The Playroom Theater : 151 W. 46th St.
Open: 11/29/18- Close: 12/09/18 Empath
In EMPATH, writer/performer David Sauvage chronicles his own spiritual coming-out as the titular empath – a person hypersensitive to the emotions of others to the point of experiencing them as his own. Part story of personal discovery and healing, part performance art piece featuring live readings with audience members, the show follows the past decade of its creator’s life. Tracing his transformation from skeptical empiricist into purposeful performer-healer, Sauvage’s work is about bringing people back to the truth of who they really are.
