CAST

Asylum in Georgia

by John C. Davenport

Presented May 19 & 25

Asylum in Georgia – Pauletta, an anchorwoman at a Texas TV station, comes to the tiny Georgia town of Throckmorton to resolve some issues while she’s at a crossroads in her life. She’s on “administrative leave” from her job, she’s gotten through her second divorce, and she has just dropped off her son to start college. But the big questions have to do with a pile of bricks in Throckmorton that will soon be part of a resort. Was that a mental asylum her father built … and ultimately destroyed?

Our Space

by Caroline Turner Cole

Presented May 18 & 24

Our Space explores the use of social media by bringing to the stage some unlikely characters — Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and others lead the audience through the digital world, exploring daily life through a new and interesting lens. A surreal and yet surprisingly realistic look at how constant “connection” can work in reverse to break down relationships. A demanding and exciting ensemble piece.
