Inspired by the 1984 murder of controversial shock jock Alan Berg, TALK RADIO is set in a Cleveland radio station over the course of Barry Champlain’s two-hour broadcast as he’s being scrutinized that night by producers fixated on taking the show national, and fueled as always by coffee, cocaine and Jack Daniel’s. Barry’s jousts with his unseen callers—ranging from a white supremacist to a woman obsessed with her garbage disposal—are interspersed with confrontations by his ex-deejay pal and his sometime girlfriend/producer.

Open: 09/12/14- Close: 09/27/14 THE CLUB
In the innocuous boardroom of an Australian Rules football club, corruption and greed reign supreme. The Club, an Australian cultural classic debating teamwork and greed, is about a team that hasn't won a game all season, despite forking out a small fortune to acquire a star player who couldn't care less about football. The coach wants to quit, the players threaten to strike, and the club president is embroiled in scandal. But the club's devious administrator, in cahoots with a former player and coach, would dispense with them all if it meant the team had a shot at the championship.
