Bitches Anonymous, by Gloria C. Adams, Jennine "DOC" Wright, and Teresa Johnson.
Bitch (n): a woman who doesn't give men what they want. Three Austin poets redefine, reinvent, and reclaim the word "bitch." When you call these women bitches, you'd better mean it as a compliment. Directed by Gloria C. Adams and produced by Teresa Johnson.

Christy (Act I), by Cindy Vining.
Christy, powerhouse CEO, returns to her childhood home for her mother's funeral only to discover that Roger, Christy's high school flame, married her mother on her deathbed and has inherited the house. To make matters worse, Roger is sleeping with Christy's younger sister, Bev.

Crawling with Monsters Now, by Latino Theatre Initiatives, Eric Wiley, Head Writer, with material gathered by the ensemble in Mexico (Latino Theatre Initiatives).
Come along for the ride when a bunch of theatre nerds from a South Texas college decide to visit their friends and families in the crime-filled neighborhoods of Reynosa, Mexico, just across the Rio Grande. Check out the pictures and videos and listen to their stories of life among the outlaws in today's Mexico. Multimedia documentary.  

Girls Girls Girls, by Amy Averett, Caitlin Sweetlamb, Cynthia Oelkers, Kimberly Cox, Megan Flynn, Sarah Doering and Shana Merlin, accompanied by one of our musical improvisers (Girls Girls Girls).
Girls Girls Girls is Austin, Texas’ longest running all-female musical theater improvisation troupe. Our specialty is creating full-length, improvised Broadway musicals from a single audience suggestion. In other words, the Girls and their live musician make up the songs, dances, characters and stories to create one complete, blow-your-socks-off musical . . . and we do it completely on the fly.

105, by Daria Miyeko Marinelli (The 2017 Cohen New Works Festival).
"If this trip doesn't kill you, I might." 105 is a post-apocalyptic radio dance play that follows siblings Jackson and Sybil as they travel cross-country in search of a mythic conclave. Combining radio play, dance, and original music, 105explores sacrifice, survival, and who we become when faced with a broken world.
