What happens when nature hits you with a storm that you aren't prepared for? Or perhaps a miracle? Should we ask why? Or look it in the eye and live with it. Anibal and two-years pregnant Celestina live in a Los Angeles facing ongoing natural disasters, including The Big One, an apocalyptic storm that wipes the city of its present identity, forcing it to rebuild. "Sometimes there's no time - only an endless now that needs to be filled with life."

And Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens
Candy Delaney is the prettiest interior decorator south of the Mason Dixon Line. All she needs is a nice piece of beefcake to take her arm and share her bed. Enter Karl, a "straight" Seaman in town for Mardi Gras weekend. Karl insists that he doesn’t love Candy because she’s not a "real" girl…but desire blossoms in mysterious ways... Written in the early 1950s, this is the Tennessee Williams play you’ve never heard of. It was unperformed in his lifetime and gives us a rare glimpse at a great American playwright writing openly about gay men and gay culture in the permissively decadent atmosphere of Mardi Gras.
Featuring Jamie Bogyo, Steven Lee Johnson, Patrick Madden, and Josh Wilder.Buy Tickets
