Take a flip through Facebook, mosey around MySpace, or fix your target on Manhunt, and a curious reality becomes clear: never before has it been so easy to construct our own persona....

dark play
or stories for boys

by Carlos Murillo

When 14-year old Nick comes across a naively worded ad from 16-year-old Adam reading "I want to fall in love," he's blown away. What is this love? Already bored with cyber sex and posting fake online ads, Nick invents the girl of Adams’s dreams, Rachel, and Adam and Rachel fall hard. But as the cyber relationship heightens, so do the emotional stakes in the real world, until the two collide with devastating consequences.

Nick’s seemingly outrageous deceptions are closely based on true events which took place in Manchester, England, where, for the first time in British history, a person was convicted for inciting their own murder.

Running time, apx. 90 minutes.

"Wells has crafted a taut, cleverly orchestrated piece about power, personal psychosis, game-playing, morality and the terror of failure." -Chicago Sun Times

Men of Tortuga
by Jason Wells

In an undisclosed location, three men scheme with a weapons specialist to eliminate the opposition in Jason Wells' dark comedy of negotiation, conspiracy and assassination. Tom Avery, Jeff Kling and Kit Maxwell are three power-brokers who will stop at nothing to wreck an historic meeting with an elite political enemy. But when Maxwell takes a young idealist under his wing, his long-dormant conscience begins to reawaken. The cabal is forced to concoct even more outlandish scenarios of annihilation and ponder whether their ends justify their means.

Running time, apx. 1 hour 40 minutes.
Performances will be followed by a Reception with the actors in the Gallery.

April 17-May 17, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00, with Sunday matinees at 3:00 on May 10 & 17.
