Jesus and ValiumA Full Production

The winner of last year's festival, this will be the world premiere of this incredible play, which is written by a group of local Waco playwrights! It is a phenomenal story that highlights speaks to themes of family, love, and acceptance. Jesus and Valium explores the marginalization of LGBTQ persons in a unique and captivating way, and begs us all to ask the question why we are so willing to look at one another as so very 'other.' One you don't want to miss!

Near Nellie BlyA Staged Reading

Written by Mark Loewenstern, this play examines the undercover work of Nellie Bly by reimagining it through the eyes of someone who stayed with her in the asylum. Weaving together historical narrative and fantastical characters, this story is one you won't soon forget.

Yella JackA Staged Reading

Written by Donna Latham, this play sheds light on life during a pandemic, but not perhaps the one you're thinking. Set during the Yellow Fever plague in Memphis in the 1870s, the story is one of community in times of crisis. An example of science and faith holding hands, you will walk away considering the ways that history truly does repeat itself and how we may be able to learn from it.

Cardboard Castles Hung on WallsA Staged Reading

Written by Amy Tofte, this play illuminates the ways that arts and politics influence each other as well as the community in which they are practiced. The complexities of this reciprocal relationship are examined in this modern day play, and the question remains: who truly gets overlooked?

The Profession, A Staged Reading

Written by Marcia Eppich-Harris, this play asks us to consider what people are willing to do in order to 'make it,' particularly when no one else is looking. Set against the backdrop of academia, we enter with the characters into moral quandaries about what is right and what is necessary, and whether those two are the same thing.
