To Nineveh  | Open: 10/21/05 Close: 11/13/05
Rebekah and Isaac, parents to two grown sons, Jacob and Esau, struggle to make their way through their temptations, their sins, and their duties as the two young men prepare for their adulthood, and their roles in a more than normal family.For Isaac is the lawyer of God, Esau, the older son, the man to follow in his footsteps, Jacob the rebel, struggling with his own sexuality, at odds with all, but the favorite of Rebekah.

If the story sounds familiar it should.It's the dusty Old Testament tale, told in the present, of Isaac and Rebekah, Jacob and Esau: the tale of the struggle for power past birthright, of the deception used to achieve, and the question of who truly deserves.

A world premiere


Pulling Teeth  | Open: 07/21/05 Close: 08/07/05
Seth and Katie love God, oatmeal cookies, and each other. The only blight on their model Christian lifestyle is when Seth brings his work home. Their life consists of a sweet, simple routine: after Bible study, Katie cooks Seth's dinner while Seth removes the identifiable body parts of his latest "job." When a botched "job" comes back to haunt him, Seth and Katie will have to decide what, if anything, will make them directly participate in something they know is very, very wrong. A very dark comedy.
