WE ALL NEED SOME HELP
written and directed by Macah Coates
buy tickets here

Solo_Macah
This is a 9 character sketch comedy, that takes you on a randomly ridiculous ride of over the top people and situations, all using the body of one actor. It is loosely and sometimes not so loosely based on many of the real people Macah has come into contact with while living in NYC. And if you keep your eyes open for a week while going to various places on this island you may be able to point some out as you walk down the streets, or ride on the bus and subway, or parks, or nearly any public place.

8:30pm
NO VACANCY
written and directed by Clea Rivera

Solo_Clea
Clea Rivera, creator of eccentric French chef, Michelle Cassis, and solo show, Food Of Life, is back with a new character, in No Vacancy. Meet Betty Lou Gerber from Daleville, owner of the Bed and Breakfast establishment, the Weeping Willow Inn. Betty Lou lives by her own set of rules, in a fantasy world. Explore with her the circumstances that propel her out of her small town life into a whole new adventure, and the motley crew of characters she meets along the way. Directed by Sara Berg.

OBNOXIOUS

Solo_Melissa
What happens when old friends who become new mothers get together for a play date in the park? Things can only get obnoxious. Melissa Murray embodies the good, the band and the “Oh no you didn’t” of motherhood in the formation of 4 moms and a nanny.
