A COCKTAIL PARTY SOCIAL EXPERIMENT|
Is it possible to have a meaningful conversation with a perfect stranger in our fast-paced, increasingly lonely world? This question has inspired the cocktail guru, theatre artist, and storyteller Wil Petry to create A COCKTAIL PARTY SOCIAL EXPERIMENT – an unconventional hybrid of immersive theater, story slam, and an evening of boozy voyeurism. The guests are asked to turn off their cell phones for the duration of the event; some can just watch and listen – while eight volunteers skip the small talk, and get into the good stuff. Ticket price includes one free cocktail; a bar on the premises opens an hour before the show and serves drinks throughout the performance.

CONFIDENCE (and The Speech)|
On July 4, 1979 President Carter cancelled an important energy policy speech he was scheduled to give the next day and disappeared to Camp David. Ten days later, he emerged from his impromptu domestic summit and gave a new speech, the Crisis of Confidence speech, which many now view as unprecedented, farsighted and insightful. Others think it may have ultimately cost him the White House. Forty years later, college professor Cynthia Cooper is approached by a stranger, a young man, and asked to recall her time with the Carter Administration during the days before the now infamous “malaise” speech. If she is going to tell her story of that time, she is going to play the President. And the young man who wants to know her story? Well, he is going to play her. This unique cross-gender play explores the confidence of a president, a nation in chaos and women in politics.
