Medea, by Euripides, translation by Ian Johnston. In this performance, the Sacred Clowns Theatre Project presents their interpretation of Euripides' two-thousand-year-old play about a woman fighting to be heard in a society where she feels betrayed by men and those in power. Swimming through her grief and anger, she summons her strength to achieve not vengeance but what she considers to be her justice. What will one person sacrifice to make their voice heard? Alex Garza and Keira Marti explore this timeless tale through a contemporary, twenty-five-minute staging.

Eye Contact and Hate Crimes, written and performed by Isabel Goyer. Isabel Goyer goes on an autobiographical journey back to the roots of her female identity, along the way running into small events that loom large in the context of new understandings of trans identity.

The Original Coven, by Jennine “DOC” Krueger, Tova Charles, Amber Wilson. Three black women come together to discuss issues in society ranging from love to mental health to police brutality. This is told through the lens of witches and magic. By evoking the true power of Black Girl Magic, they explore the dark and light parts of the same spirit that connects black women.

Big Guy, by Max Langert (ScriptWorks Commission). When Lucy brings her new friend Tina home to meet the parents, her father isn't quite what he appears to be. Directed by Ellie McBride.

All the Lovely People, written and directed by Raymond V. Whelan. John Lennon, Eleanor Rigby and Father McKenzie are watching us. Featuring Sebastian Garcia as John Lennon, Samantha Levine as Eleanor Rigby and Raymond V. Whelan as Father McKenzie.
