Limbotastic (via FronteraFest)
LIMBOTASTIC, by Rita Anderson. Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath, and Amy Winehouse meet up in the afterlife in limbo. When Winehouse suggests that they create a 60s girl group called The Soul Sisters of Suicide, the women drink, they fight over who’s the most famous, they play Truth or Dare—until someone figures out why they are there and they band together to get out. Absurd dark comedy.

Silent Faces, written and performed by Alex Garza. In this collage of characters, writer and actor Alex Garza explores the faces and voices of history who lived and loved through the many spectrums of the rainbow. They were people who lived in fear, people who loved in silence, and people who just didn't give a crap. They were adored, they were oppressed, but most of all, they were often invisible pioneers who created a bridge for those of us who realized we were not meant to take the "straight" and narrow path.

BRINE VIII: You Have Three Minutes, by Stuart Hersh. The author learns of his family's place and hometown's place in American history by moving to Austin, Texas.

A Slippery Slope, by Bernadette Nason. Working at a Dubai hotel, Nason has countless responsibilities, including attending hotel social functions. She's introverted; these events terrify her. During one such obligatory party, she discovers that a gin and tonic steadies her nerves. A bottle of Beefeater Gin, a humid evening, a bougainvilliea-filled garden, and a pride of peacocks = cataclysmic disaster. Performed by Bernadette Nason, directed by Michael Stuart.

Action Bike:Prequel, by Eva Suter, directed by Noah Martin (ScriptWorks Commission). Pedal fast as you can, you can't outbike your fate
