The Great American College Tour
Ian McWethy and 1 other
Calvin and Olive’s parents insist they tour as many colleges as possible before deciding what they’re going to do after graduation. (Even though they both already have plans!) Now they’re stuck visiting the quirkiest, most extreme examples of American higher education, including a sports-obsessed Big Ten school (Go Trucks!), a wilderness university with a carnivorous bear problem, and an institution that is definitely not a cult. A high-energy comedy that dares to ask: should some of these universities lose their accreditation?

Fire Exit
Stacie Lents
Everybody at Westfield High School thinks they know what happened the day of the fire. Fire Exit opens in the aftermath, as the community faces what appears to be a prank gone terribly wrong. But as the kids and adults open up about their lives and the bigger picture of the day's events emerges, the truth proves to be far less simple. Told through a series of poignant and often very funny monologues, Fire Exit is a powerful ensemble piece that proves things, and people, aren't always as they seem.
