Genre: Comedy
By Sem Megson, Directed by Lauren Cavanaugh

In “Lovers & Thieves” there’s a thief of hearts, and the heart of a thief, but which one is which? Shelly and Kaden are a married couple and owners of a match making business, yet they can barely keep their relationship together. Renata and May- May, a pair of thieves burst into their lives, turning their business upside down. Unwittingly, Kaden’s lovable nerdy client, Barton gets caught in the middle. The play confronts our current ultra-technological society, and how it affects relationships. As Renata explains, “The fetish of our time is Googling our lovers”.

“Matty and the Airplane” is about a young child’s imaginary world that shields him from the vulnerability of his newly broken family. This short play is a fast paced, quirky drama-comedy that will keep you wanting more.
