“Fistfight with God”

“The Dead of Night”
Paula Zelaya Cervantes
Directed by Jayda Novak
This piece follows Felix, the fifth and favourite grandchild of an ex-senator, as he stumbles into a candlelit room
in a panic. In his hand he holds knowledge he would rather ignore, at his feet there is a Gun. And the saints are watching.
Directed by John Dickinson
Young people get lost and try to find each other in an entangled labyrinth of love. Need we say more?
“The Day I Died”
Directed by Scott Zechner and Javier Ricardo Sotres Porres
The monologue of a recently deceased man from beyond the grave, this piece is a recollection of the day he died and how facets of his life tied together with the
events of that one day.
The Pesky Interview by Benjamin Buckingham
Directed by Jessica VanElk
Anne is going in for her first job interview. She has everything planned out and her mother waiting in the car. Her primary obstacle is her interviewer Michael who is unimpressed with her exuberance. When he challenges her belief in pescetarianism, all rules are off.
