In World’s Teeniest, a woman comes home to find a kid in her house who just won’t leave. As they spar with words, it becomes clear there is more happening here than meets the eye. Amy White is a well known local writer whose work have been performed at Mount Vernon Lisbon Community Theatre and Riverside Theatre. Her work was also featured in Dreamwell’s production of Soldier’s Daughter last year.
Some Assembly Required is a very funny play about Freedom.
AfterWerx is the journey of two living people looking for answers in the afterlife to the destiny-altering moments of their lives.
