LEAVING RHODE ISLAND, COCK (THE ROOSTER PLAY), Summer Camps and More Set for Artists' Exchange, July-Aug 2014

Artists' Exchange has announced its upcoming events for the summer. Details below!

EPIC Theatre Company presents
Leaving Rhode Island
July 11th - 26th
Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm | Sunday 7pm
Tickets $15 General Admission, $12 Seniors & Students

In 2009, a large group of Rhode Islanders were told to leave the state for an unspecified length of time. Within a week, they had to leave family, friends, and the rest of their lives behind to start over in brand new places all over the world. Five years later, they're told they can come home. Why were they told to leave? And why can they now return? Why were these people chosen? And the most important question of all - Will they come back? Written and directed by Kevin Broccoli, presented by Epic Theatre Company in Artists' Exchange Black Box Theatre. Artists' Exchange is located at 50 Rolfe Square Cranston, RI 02910. For more information and tickets, call 401.490.9475 or visit www.artists-exchange.org.

Tony Cobain & Trevor Joyner present
Why Wait?
Written and Created by Tony Cobain & Trevor Joyner
July 19th
Saturday at 8pm
Tickets $15 General Admission
Theatre 82 | 82 Rolfe Square

Don't miss the hottest young, up-and-coming comedy duo, Trevor Joyner and Tony Cobain! Creators and writers of what the Hilltop Magazine calls a "YouTube sensation", Joyner and Cobain bring their characteristic offbeat humor of The Tony Cobain Show web series to the northeast. Cobain, central character of the hit webs series sets the evening off as the master of ceremonies while touching on a range of topics from his intense allergy attacks to his absurd family. Joyner finishes strong as the headliner with his no-hold barred brand of humor, which has been described as, "a series of hilarious sequences that toe the line between stream-of-consciousness, conversation, self-reflection and stand-up comedy" by DC Metro Theater Arts Magazine. After laughing out loud all night long, you'll want to follow these two comics to every city on their U.S. comedy tour, aptly titled: "WHY WAIT?" Theatre 82 is located at 82 Rolfe Square in Cranston.

John has been with his boyfriend for a long time, but when they decide to take a break, he falls in love--with a woman. Both John's boyfriend and his new girlfriend are determined to keep him. When a dinner party is arranged with everybody involved, John's boyfriend's father shows up, and all hell breaks loose. This comedic and touching look at sexual identity and the nature of love is designed to be performed with no sets or props, only the story playing out in front of the audience.
