January 8th, 7pm
BARBARA’S BLUE KITCHEN by Lori Fischer
featuring Lori Fischer* with Daniel Black
Set in a small town just outside of Nashville, this slice-of-life comedic play with music is a genuine look into the hearts
of everyday people. As the proprietor, Barbara Jean, tries to figure out “When is it courageous and when is it just plain crazy to hang on to love,” her customers come in and take a load off by sharing their funny, heartbreaking humanity. Throughout it all, the wacky DJ from WATR, the local radio station, breaks in with local news, commercials about baldness and whole slew of quirky, unforgettable toe-tapping songs.

ROSA IN RED by Arabelle Pollick
featuring Tamara Todres
Rosa accepts the inevitable. There's only one question left: how to start a revolution?
RAZZ-MAN by Matt Rhoden
featuring Chris Bosen
It's been a long season, especially for left-fielder, Ryan Bagley. Why won't Razz-Man let him be?
ARTHUR AND GENA written and performed by Bethany Fagan
August 1972, Arthur and Gena meet in the back of a New Orleans club. Trumpets blaring, cobblestone streets, and a book passed back and forth for over thirty years. Every heartbreak, revelation, and hidden secret in pen and ink hidden on the third shelf in a forgotten thrift store... until today.
January 10th, 7pm
SLOPPY BONNIE by Krista Knight
directed by Leah Lowe, composed by Barry Brinegar, and featuring Arabelle Pollick
Deeply moved by some long-forgotten Julia Roberts vehicle, special-ed teacher Bonny (nee Bonita nee ‘Sloppy Bonny’ when she’s drunk), sets out on what she hopes will be an inspirational road trip to be with her lover, who has ghosted her ever since she broke off her engagement with her former-fiancé. Her arrival brings reckoning and closure as she forces her lover to face the victims of his ghosting. A one-woman play about feminine toxicity with a country western
Marilyn Monroe as a hapless serial killer.
LA BELLA NOIR NOIR, written and performed by Patriq James
Venture through “The Beautiful Black Black” to experience the importance of darkness. This striking piece of performance art advocates for the artist in all of us, provoking thought and facing fear of the unknown. Bring an open mind and your charged cell phone!
