Sitting and Talking by Lia Romeo: This Thursday, November 12, @7:30PM 

Sitting and Talking

by Lia Romeo

PLAY written for performance on ZOOM

Thursday, November 12, @7:30pm

Sitting and Talking reflects on our human need to connect, no matter what the circumstances. Charles and Enid are in their sixties, and have never tried online dating before, especially not over video chat. But now that they're confined to their homes, there's a first time for everything. A love story for this moment. 

With André DeSandies as Charles and Gail Lou as Enid.

AND... you can still listen to Ways To Be Happy!

Ways To Be Happy

by David Lee White


Originally scheduled for production in the spring of 2020, Ways to be Happy has come to life as an audio play. This comedy about chasing our inalienable right covers multiple locations using listeners’ imaginations and the lively sound design of Jeff Knapp. Darting from a convenience store to a cabin in the woods to a theme park, Maddie and the unusual people she meets are searching for happiness. Does it exist? Or is the world fundamentally rigged? The recording is available now.


"Just listened to Ways to be Happy, and loved it!!!...I was riveted to my seat. Compelling performances, awesome sound design and direction."

—Betsy True
