Part One:

Reincarnate by Jacob Horowitz

Punchline by Jeremy Pritchard
People go to a drag show to laugh, but when the audience doesn't laugh at Toni A. Ward's jokes, she finds herself facing the reality that maybe her jokes are trying to cover up something deeper. Spend an intimate evening with your hostess with the mostest, Toni A. Ward, the broadest broad who never played Broadway, in this poignant one-person tour-de-force performance.

How to Get Caught with Murder by Kendal Ferguson
Tormented by a guilty conscience over his wife's death, Nelson is compelled to confess his crimes. Conveniently, a police officer knocks on his door. Inconveniently, the officer knows a little too much about “irony.”

Tomorrow Is my Day by Bella Panciocco
We worry about tomorrow. The world is always focused on the next day. What’s to come? What will the future bring? What’s going to happen to these characters…tomorrow?

Part Two:

How Jane Got Married by Caroline Austin
Jane is a young therapist challenged with the most daunting task of her career: group therapy with three of Shakespeare’s tragic heroes. As she tries to show Hamlet, Romeo, and Antony the error of their ways, she is met with sarcasm, teenage resistance, and... romance?

Inside Are We Monsters? by J. D. Clark
A new company hire and his compatriots work to change the rigged system amidst worldwide upheaval.

Look for the Good by Ariel Kraje
Everyone expresses pain in a different way. Instead of dealing with it alone, we can use technology to stay connected. An exploration of the Stages of Grief through movement in the time of pandemic.

Algún Día (Someday) by Sophia Inserra
The story of two women from seemingly parallel worlds hustling to make it to their “someday”—a point in life when dreams become a reality.
