Drinking on a Plane
by Patricia Cotter
directed by Jesse Jou

While getting drunk on their company’s dime, blue-collar work buddies Steve and Ray try to get to the bottom of corporate exploitation, messy sex, good parenting and true love.

by Jess Honovich
directed by Lavina Jadhwani

Two teenage employees work to finish their last tasks before closing time at a B-list computer store in Pittsburgh. Hardware is a meditation on work and the understanding that no one really knows anything.

The Rust Belt Bronies Meet Up Group for Adult Fans of My Little Pony
by Eric John Meyer
directed by Jelani Cornick

Times are tough in the neighborhood, but the Rust Belt Bronies still gather weekly to share their feelings, their homemade costumes, and their love for Twilight Sparkle and the rest of the Mane Six. It’s an innocent escape from reality—until reality crashes the party.

All This Togetherness
by Francesca Pazniokas
directed by Lavina Jadhwani

Seven strangers gather together to meet the one man they all have in common—their father. All This Togetherness explores the risk and reward of discovering who you are.

Grown-Ass Louis
by Bruce Walsh
directed by Jesse Jou

When Louis was 10 years old, he wrote a note to his recently deceased father, tied it to a balloon and released it to the heavens. Now, even though he’s a grown-ass man, he can’t stop wondering if his father ever received the message.

Maggie and Winnie in The Thirteenth Time
by The Associates Theater Ensemble
directed by Joan Sergay

Maggie and Winnie are best friends. Better than best: they’ve saved each other’s lives twelve times. But when they meet their fate—in the flesh—they’re caught off-guard by the decision they have to make.
