PRESENTED BY THE STAR BAR PLAYERS

FEBRUARY 5 + 12 | 4.30 PM

Lucy is on a cross-country mission, looking for the love of her life. Her journey takes her across the American landscape, through hilarious and eccentric relationships in which time and emotion pass in a warped instant. When her quest becomes intertwined with that of a quirky female serial killer (an astrophysicist gone bad), the landscape changes once again as they cross state lines and faultlines, exploring the geography of the human heart.

Tickets: $15 general, $12 seniors/military, $6 students

THEATREGASM TURNS 10!
PRESENTED BY THEATREdART
MARCH 10, 11, 17, 18 | 8 PM
MARCH 12 + 19 | 4 PM

Even though this is technically only the ninth Theatregasm (if you count the Best Of and the Christmas one), we've decided, like many times before, that we don't like rules. So we are jumping directly to Theatregasm 10. To be fair, this is our season 10, so it works, thematically. Also, it's not like we went from Theatregasm ME to Theatregasm Vista to Theatregasm 7, then 8, then 10, so we get some slack, thank you very much.

Theatregasm will feature a variety of short plays under 10 minutes.

Submissions are now open and will stay open until January 15, 2017. Stay up to date by liking our page on Facebook, or subscribing to our email list.

Tickets are pay-what-you-can for the full run but we may beg for donations since we're a low-budget community theatre. No one is safe!!


THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST by Nikos Kazantakis and A. Rhodes
PRESENTED BY COUNTER/WEIGHT THEATRE LAB
APRIL 21, 22, 29, 30 + MAY 5, 6 | 7.30 PM
APRIL 23, 30 + MAY 7 | 5.30 PM

Two thousand years ago in occupied Palestine, a carpenter named Jesus is plagued by visions, voices, and seizures that promise divinity and a chance to save the world from empire. As his revolutionary friend Judas encourages armed uprising, Jesus shares his ideas of radical love and empowerment of the oppressed. Along the way, he is tempted to abandon the path, struggling to understand and fulfill his destiny. This is one of the foundational stories of Western culture told in a way you’ve never experienced, addressing the conflict between human and divine. The Last Temptation of Christ takes away the pious and safe traditional iconography that often accompanies this story and makes it intimate, relevant, and raw.

Tickets: $10 general, $6 students

MAY 19, 20, 27, 28 + JUNE 2, 3 | 8 PM
MAY 21, 29 + JUNE 4 | 4 PM

Written by Miguel Piñero in 1974, Short Eyes is the sort of lighthearted comedy you've come to expect from TdA, in the same vein as Death and the Maiden and Mercury Fur [editor's note: not actually a comedy]. Set in an unnamed House of Detention in New York City, the plot revolves around the addition of a new prisoner, incarcerated for child molestation [editor's note: still not a comedy].

Tickets: $15 general, $5 students
Opening weekend is entirely pay-what-you-can.
