On Lynn Bianchí´s Bubbles by the sea the female performer with her bubbles draws our eye to the magic of the quotidian. The feeling the Everyday creates is the main character of her work. In it, the past and present connect, old and young rub shoulders, and the aspirations of both touch each other. Once she finds the perfect frame, she stays with it and let the life within it unfold and with it - the grandeur and magic of the everyday.

The spirit of a broken hearted daughter calls out to the spirit of her father at sea, like a siren, hoping he won’t fail her this time. The father answers the call but ruins the reunion by giving into his demons. His daughters scorn leads him back to the sea begging for another chance to do right by her.

Shell Game

Directed by Steven Gray, Robert Bullis, New York, NY, 11:41, World Premiere!
Two vagabond lovers navigate the realities of their circumstance. Blake is a young 'shell game' hustler who aspires to be a Shakespearean actor. The more fragile partner in the relationship and consumed by his dreams, he desires more from himself and his life. Zack, the 'shill' in the duo's con, physically and emotionally stronger than Blake, is content with their lives as wayward travelers who have found themselves squatting in an abandoned theater on Coney Island. Sensitive to Blake's dramatic impulses, Zack indulges him by acting out scenes from The Tempest.

The Mystery Gang

Directed by Eric J. Carlson, Glendale, NY, 9:46, Brooklyn Premiere!
There is a ghost spooking the guests at Luna Park and the gang has been hired to solve the mystery.
