As their attempts at renewal leave a path of destruction in their wake, Kali bears witness to what the floodwaters left behind.

The Madwomen of Chaillot  
A Noise Within The Madwomen of Chaillot
 
Liquid (and comedic) gold fuels this feminist, fantastical, frack-tured fairy tale. Oil is discovered under Paris, and Countess Aurelia and her kooky coterie are determined to drive away the evil corporate profiteers lying in wait. A can’t miss rallying-cry for those who crave a satisfying David vs. Goliath fable in the form of incisive, side-splittingly funny theatre.

With Love and a Major Organ  
Boston Court Performing Arts Center With Love and a Major Organ
 
Whimsical, quirky, and wildly original, With Love and a Major Organ pushes on the ever-stranger phenomenon of physical human interaction in the age of technology. Why is it that we are ever more connected and yet we have never felt more alone? During her morning commute, a young woman falls in love with a total stranger she meets on the subway. After giving the man her actual beating heart, he disappears —leading this unlikely heroine on a quest to retrieve her heart, accidentally cracking open those of others she meets along the way. With Love and a Major Organ is an eccentric, edgy comedy about what it costs to give your heart away, and what happens when you discover you actually have one.
