Event Details

Asking hard questions sometimes results in answers you aren't prepared for. Join us for an evening of 2 one acts that hilariously and heartbreakingly struggle with the most difficult conversations people can have.

About the shows: Selected from over 240 submissions, these two shows both deal with uncomfortable - but necessary - conversations. In Webster's Bitch, all ages grapple with how to define obscene language in the age of Twitter. In The Burnouts, a boy struggles to keep his chosen family close at any cost.

Before purchasing tickets: Please note, both shows contain adult language and mature themes. Audience members must be 18+. Approximate run time of the show is 75 minutes.
