Looking Forward to Doing Nothing

The jerk on the subway who doesn’t use earbuds, the annoying guy at work who’s way too obsessed with himself, the group of tourists who are taking up the entire sidewalk when you’re in a hurry. You’ve had a long day and you’ve been looking forward to doing nothing. Come watch this comedy variety show of standup, storytelling, and one character sketches. Because laughter is better than screaming at someone.

Charlie McCracken

Ray Lawrence
Matthew Fay

Unpacking: A Ghost Story Told in the Dark

A happy couple has just moved into their new home. But the novelty of homeownership quickly fades as they face a sea of boxes, a major blackout, and, shortly thereafter, the ghosts of all their past relationships.
The newest play from comedians Marina & Nicco combine two of your biggest fears: the dark and commitment.  The audience lends a hand by lighting the stage for a couple that is literally, and figuratively, feeling their way through the dark. Flashlights will be provided.
