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.

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.

Open: 11/15/18- Close: 11/17/18 ONLYHUMAN
ONLYHUMAN is a dance theater piece by a French-born, NYC-based artist Christine Bonansea. Inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s aphoristic volume Human, All Too Human, the work investigates the stark contradiction between our race’s capacity for beauty against its most destructive tendencies. ONLYHUMAN also deals with the various perception of a body, from human to post-human. Developed in a close collaboration with a stellar group of international artists, the show is wrapped into a ultra-modern, Matrix-like, futuristic layer of striking multimedia visuals, featuring the lighting design by Solomon Weisband (who recently worked on a major operatic production with Robert Wilson), with visuals by acclaimed photographer Robert Flynt, video and multimedia by

Open: 11/10/18- Close: 11/18/18 The Little Prince
The Little Prince tells the story of a world-weary and disenchanted Aviator whose sputtering plane strands him in the Sahara Desert, where he meets a mysterious, regal young boy: The Little Prince. Over the course of the next eight days stranded in the desert, The Little Prince recounts the miraculous story of his life, while the Aviator reconnects with his lost youth.

EPIC’s inclusive adaption employs a neuro-diverse cast who share the story of the Little Prince and his new friend and their adventures through the galaxy. The audience as with our heroes, will go home with a new understanding of how to laugh, cry, love and accept all that life may have in store for us. Appropriate for kids and grown-ups of all ages.
