Constellations by Nick Payne

Directed by Zac Curtis
Performing as part of the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival 3 performances, August 4 – August 6. Rehearsals beginning soon.

SYNOPSIS: This spellbinding, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know—delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.

God’s Favorite by Neil Simon

Directed by Dave Hanson

Will perform at the Rose Wager, September 21 – October 7, 2017 (9 performances total).

SYNOPSIS: Successful Long Island businessman Joe Benjamin is a modern-day ‘Job’ with a demanding wife, ungrateful children and wise-cracking household employees. Just when it seems things couldn’t get any worse, he is visited by Sidney Lipton, a.k.a. A Messenger from God (and compulsive film buff) with a mission: test Joe’s faith and report back to “the Boss.” The jokes and Tests of Faith fly fast and furious as Neil Simon spins a contemporary morality tale like no other in this hilarious comedy.
