Production History

7 Stories  | Open: 04/23/08 Close: 05/04/08
Seven lives are unavoidably intertwined in the World Premiere production of Nicholas J. Peterka's 7 STORIES.

Peterka's drama explores how people inevitably reexamine their place in the world in the face of tragedy and begin to see those around them on a more human level. When a young man jumps to his death from a seventh floor balcony, the witnesses and their loved ones struggle to deal with what has occurred. Some want to forget, while others long to understand, but no one can deny that, in some way, they have each been changed.

Happy Hour: Plays About Drinking  | Open: 07/20/08 Close: 08/11/08
Six actors, four playwrights and two directors come together for an evening of original comedic one-acts exploring the reasons we drink and the potential results.

Improbable Fiction's inaugural production, 2007's TWELFTH NIGHT, began as a collaboration amongst a group of bartenders working together in Broadway theatres. Mick Bleyer and Molly Thomas honor the company's roots by producing a collection of all-new alcohol-themed one-act plays. After receiving submissions from across the country they narrowed the field to the four works that comprise this first installment of HAPPY HOUR: Michael Baldwin's "serenDRIPity", Quinn Michael Mattfeld's "A Bar Tale OR Steve and The Other Guy", Susie Morgan's "Fate, or Something" and Molly Thomas' "The Princess and the Woodsman". These plays examine a range of situations that alcohol can incite, whether it be late-night subway meetings, post-work bar encounters, possibly ill-advised hookups or drunken fairy tales.
