DREAM HOU$E
By Eliana Pipes
Directed by Jacqueline Moreno
February 2nd – February 12th, 2023
Rehearsals beginning after Thanksgiving

Two Latina sisters are appearing on an HGTV-style reality show to sell their family home, hoping to capitalize on the gentrification in their “changing neighborhood.” As they perform for the camera the show starts to slip into the surreal: one sister grapples with turmoil in the family’s ancestral past and the other learns how much she’s willing to sacrifice for the family’s future. What is the cultural cost of progress in America? And is cashing in always selling out?

PATRICIA – Woman, Late 30’s, Latina/Afrolatina. Accountant by day. Julia’s older sister, with a distinct Older Sister Complex. She’s practical to the core, and a natural caretaker – but often resentful of that role. She lived in the house for over a year taking care of their ailing mother. She believes money brings dignity, security, meaning.

JULIA – Woman. Late 20’s, Latina/Afrolatina. Social studies teacher by day. Patricia’s younger sister, six months pregnant. She hasn’t lived in the house since she left for college, and is recently reclaiming her heritage in preparation for motherhood. Very sentimental. She believes culture brings dignity, security, meaning.

TESSA – Woman. Early 30’s, white. Real estate agent and TV Host, well-meaning and energetic, always radiating charm. Tessa controls the reality show, and everything within it. She genuinely wants to help the Sisters, and using the show to get them the biggest payout possible is her understanding of what they need.

5 LESBIANS EATING A QUICHE
By Andrew Hobgood & Evan Linder
Directed by Kendall Jeonson
March 30th – April 9th, 2023
Rehearsals beginning early February

It’s 1956 and The Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast. As the assembled “widows” await the announcement of the society’s prize-winning quiche, the atomic bomb sirens sound! Has the Communist threat come to pass? How will the “widows” respond as their idyllic town and lifestyle faces attacks? Winner of the 2012 NYC International Fringe Festival as Best Overall Production, 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche is a tasty recipe of hysterical laughs, sexual innuendoes, unsuccessful repressions, and delicious discoveries.
