BLOOD RIVER by Kingston Playwright Chloe Whitehorn,  Oct 25 - Nov 12, 2023 brings you to the banks of a River between two states one that respects a woman's right to choose and the other that doesn't. Set in a post Roe v Wade overturned place where women's health rights have been reduced significantly. Abortion is illegal and the line between religion and law has blurred to non-existence. Karen rows a boat across the river to a different "state" where women are not prosecuted for putting their lives ahead of their unborn children. Cybele has spent her whole life buying into the beliefs and rules set for her by her religious/conservative parents until her circumstances force her to question everything. Diane is Cybele's mother and former high school friend of Karen desperate to save her child from the circumstances she herself has cultivated. This world premiere was commissioned by Theatre Kingston from Kingston Playwright Chloe Whitehorn and examines women's agency and the plight presented by the predatory political agendas of the patriarchy.

BAKERSFIELD MIST by Stephen Sachs, Feb 7 - Feb 25 2024   Maude, a fifty-something unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, has bought a painting for a few bucks from a thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she's now convinced it's a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover. Inspired by true events, this hilarious and thought-provoking new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic.
