Eight friends reunite for a weekend getaway. Drinks are poured. Snow falls and doesn't stop. At the heart of all the levity is one dark secret that binds the group together, but as the resources and the pleasantries start to dwindle, a revelation threatens to tear the friends apart. The Brink of Us artfully, and ominously, tells the story of how the ghosts of our past can come howling into the present. Remember to lock the door; it's treacherous outside, and the deer are getting hungry...

Twelfth Night, Or What You Will  | Open: 03/20/14 Close: 03/23/14
If music be the food of love, join us!

Lamp-light, steamer trunks, and antique song channel a dreamy world where persons find themselves adrift: Illyria is a state of mind mysteriously common to the in-love, the insane, the courageous and the confounded. A world of foolery, fantasy, and rowdy house guests, where identity is mistaken and imagination proves true, most of the time.

The Workshop  | Open: 11/17/12 Close: 11/17/12
Can political odd couples ever be happy? The Workshop is a full length play written by Alice T. Crowe. This modern day story is essential to writers and anyone who aspires to become a writer.

The Workshop is a moving play about a frustrated angry poet who struggles to discover his voice among a group of wanna be writers in a writer's workshop. He meets his political opposite and struggles to win her over and stay true to his muse while making his art relevant in the age of a black president.

Workshop members test their creative pieces out in front of a sometimes judgmental and critical audience of their peers. The audience connects with their pain, joy, experiences, and triumphs.

The Workshop is a hilariously, satirical commentary about the African American experience. Set in an artsy artist's café for the urban literati, the Workshop participants challenge the notion that black culture is monolithic. The Workshop explores how the contradictions of politics, race and gender impact romantic relationships. The artists struggle with the challenges of making their art relevant in the age of a black president. Should black art change now that we have a black president?

The Workshop is a Tribute to the Late Louis Reyes Rivera. Before his death, Rivera had just finalized a 150-page epic poem Jazz in Jail. A portion of the proceeds of the event will go toward assisting in publishing Jazz in Jail.

The guest director of the staged reading is Arthur French, III. Arthur is a playwright and facilitator of the Fusion Gumbo Writer's Workshop in New York City.
