Something Something Über Alles (Das Jackpot)
WRITTEN BY ASSURBANIPAL BABILLA
DIRECTED BY DAVID COTE
PERFORMED BY ROBERT HONEYWELL
PRESENTED BY HORSE TRADE THEATER GROUP
A man who bears an uncanny resemblance to Adolf Hitler finds himself idolized by an orgiastic, underground, Führer-worshipping cult. In a monologue that’s alternately hilarious and terrifying, we glimpse the true nature of worship, authority and humanity’s tragic urge to obey. His heartbroken friend, our narrator, leads us down a twisted path to uncover the mystery of what really happened.

AND MILES TO GO
WRITTEN BY CHAD BECKIM
DIRECTED BY HAL BROOKS
PRODUCED BY PARTIAL COMFORT PRODUCTIONS
Disadvantaged students. A disheartened administration. A disintegrated infrastructure. Adele Priam has seen the very best and worst in her 50 years as a teacher in the classroom of a New York City public school. As the Board of Education considers shuttering the school, this teacher and her community will forever be changed. A play about the our education system, the frailty of life and legacy.

PRESENTED BY TEETH OF TOOTH ATELIER
Set in the streets of 21st-century Manhattan, The Downtown Loop takes the audience on a poignantly hilarious virtual bus tour evoking nostalgia for what may or may not have been, exploring gentrification, economic revitalization and the ceaseless buzzing activity that keeps Manhattan on the leading edge through the eyes of the people the city leaves behind. A tour guide leads a double-decker bus tour through Manhattan, filled with his (and our) small excitements and disappointments.
