In a manor in the English countryside, the Hunter sisters are woken repeatedly in the middle of the night by a bizarre, low whistle. They think nothing of it.

Controlling Interests by Wagner Rawley, directed by William Ramstein
Has it ever appeared to you that adults are simply bigger, louder and more assertive versions of the once kiddos they used to be? Don't adults still lie? Argue over rules? And, of course, fight over the 'coolest' and 'biggest' toys? In Controlling Interests, meet 8 businessmen and women who, during a tense meeting, reveal their true and unchanged personalities.
The Madhouse by Jerrod Bogard, directed by Rosalie Neal
America's most famous horror novelist goes to an insane asylum for inspiration. Surrounded by peculiar patients in a hospital filled with creeps and crawlies, she encounters a doctor who believes he knows the cure to her writer's block. Inspired by the Grand-Guignol theater tradition and Artaud's Theater of Cruelty, this play will make you question your sanity.
All the Presidents Turds by Bernard Scahill, directed by Cleo Charpentier
An incompetent president up for re-election, a looming terrorist threat, and an international coalition: it's the beginning of a crisis in the War Room. Then arrives an unlikely ally with an even more surprising name who creates chaos while saving the day. Political tensions and cultural differences lead to comedic confusion in the White House, while making us reflect on the nature of American politics- with some crude potty humor thrown in for good measure!
There Shall Be No Bottom (a bad play for worse actors) by Mark O’Donnell, directed by Abby Rochman
Gambling, deceit, lots and lots of mistakes! This play is about what happens when we don’t prepare enough…or just forget everything. Which happens. We’re all human.
