Bug
A Play by Tracy Letts

Directed by Jennifer Lymon

Most of the play takes place in a seedy motel room. Lonely cocktail waitress Agnes lives there, hiding from her violent ex-con ex-husband Jerry Goss. One night, her lesbian biker friend R.C. introduces her to Peter, a Gulf War veteran who might be AWOL. She gets involved with Peter, who grows increasingly paranoid about the war in Iraq, UFOs, the Oklahoma City bombing, cult suicides, and then secret government experiments on soldiers — eventually drawing Agnes into his delusions. The play deals with the issues of love, paranoia, conspiracy theories, and Agnes' slow descent into insanity under Peter's influence.

The Great American Trailer Park Musical
Music and Lyrics by David Nehls
Book by Betsy Kelso

Directed by David M. Moretti
Music Direction by Kevin Diana

Explores the relationships between the tenants at the Armadillo Acres Trailer Park in Florida, particularly between Pippi, "the stripper on the run," the Dr. Phil loving, agoraphobic Jeannie, and Jeannie's tollbooth collector husband, Norbert. 

"Adultery, strippers, murderous ex-boyfriends, Costco and the Ice Capades. Undeniable fun." —NY Post. "A bright new show!" —NY Times. "A show that actually lives up to the hype of its title." —Village Voice. "A delicious new musical. The joint is jammed and jumping with raucous laughter. It's like The Honeymooners meets The Best Little Whorehouse in Urinetown." —NY Post. "South Parkmeets Desperate Housewives in this big-hearted new musical comedy with a cheeky script by Betsy Kelso, an infectious score by David Nehls and a richly talented cast. TRAILER PARK sparkles with treasure." —NY Sun. "Joyful and unashamedly vulgar, Betsy Kelso's comic fable about women in a Florida trailer park and their no-account men is more fun than a chair-throwing episode of Jerry Springer set to music." —The New Yorker. "Entertaining and tuneful, TRAILER PARK shines like aluminum siding. "This wheel-spinning, mud-splattering good time of a show is the theatrical equivalent of a bag of Doritos. You can't get enough. Who could expect a thrillingly trashy Greek chorus of trailer park matrons whose hysterical musical stylings all but redefine the girl-group-as-cultural-commentator craze? Or a number with enough show-stopping electricity to trump every musical that opened on Broadway last season?" —Talkin' Broadway. "A sparkling, sharp irreverence lights up this musical and makes it one of the most laugh-out-loud shows in town." —Broadway.com.

Bachelorette
A Play by Leslye Headland

Directed by Rob Batarla

Ten years out of high school, Regan, Gena and Katie convene in the luxurious bridal suite of their old friend, Becky, the night before her wedding in New York City. Fueled by jealousy and resentment, the girls embark on a night of debauchery that goes from playfully wasted to devastatingly destructive. Their old fears, unfulfilled desires and deep bonds with each other transform a prenuptial bender into a night they'll never forget. A wicked black comedy about female friendship and growing up in an age of excess.
