The third installation of Charley Devany's one-man shows focusing on family history. EHD (2013) and All The Weight You Should Not Carry (2015) were FronteraFest Best of Week participants. This time his mother, Polly, gets center stage.

Bargainland, by Tristan Young Mercado.
A farce that highlights the absurdity regarding bigotry and consumerism in America. Set in the security office of a mega super store, three customers battle it out while a security guard plays referee.

BettyMash, by BettyMash (BettyMash).
BettyMash is an all-star improv show presented by BettyFest, an annual one-day event that features all-lady improv, sketch, and stand-up comedy. We aim to provide a safe space for sisters in comedy to perform without limitations.

Mean Mean Streets, by Brian Wittenbrook.
A series of interlocking monologues from characters living in a comically noir hellscape filled with crime, misfortune, and occasional ghosts.

Running Line, by RAD Dancers.
This piece is a visual interpretation using real letters written between members of the RAD dance troupe and prison inmate Jason, who served a ten year sentence. The letters describe life on the inside, fantasies of the outside, frustrations, hopes, politics, friendship, and of course, poetry. Bringing the words of Jason to life through movement, the RAD Dancers explore the mental isolation of solitary confinement and the ultimate longing for human connection.
