Greg Lam - Repossesed | November 16| 6:30-8:00pm

Rich and Gretchen have the ideal marriage...until the company that manufactured and implanted that marriage into their heads inform them that they can no longer afford it. Will their marriage survive when their memories and personalities are repossessed by the company that owns them?

This is part of series. Click here for more information on the first workshop with Hortense Gerardo - The Token Fallopians of Middleton Heights | November 2 | 6:30 - 8:00pm

The Token Fallopians of Middleton Heights is a dark comedy that follows Meena and her Filipino family as they assimilate to life in a Midwestern suburb of Cleveland, Ohio.  The play traces the historical events that reflect the political divide in America today, refracted through the lens of the Asian-American immigrant experience.
