Opening night April 26th

Chaos, comedy, and cake collide in Eat Cake, the Queer wedding of the century. Ariel and Addison are throwing their dream wedding, a DIY extravaganza, but the clock is ticking and everything is a disaster. The guests won’t stop screaming at each other or running into backrooms to make out, the cake is a catastrophe of colossal proportions, and an un-invited guest shows up stoned. What’s worse, is the couple even into the whole “gay marriage” thing or are they just doing it for their family? Featuring a diverse and colorful cast, Eat Cake is a riotous modern comedy that asks whether the love of two misfits can triumph in the face of familial calamity, and the sacrifices they have to make along the way.

July 29th-August 20th – Industry Aug 8th, 7:30pm

Nadia is a recovering alcoholic who is being haunted by her dead lover. Sheila is an aging social worker whose greatest fear is dying alone. Although at first these women appear to have nothing in common, they uncover disturbing truths that bind them on a deeper level. In this fearless play about addiction and loss, the professional and personal collide as the characters navigate the broken terrain of their lives, confront their own mortality, and face their greater demons… and angels.
