About the Shows

The Siren Song of Stephen Jay Gould by Benjamin Bettenbender

Two strangers meet when one of them falls out of the sky in a failed attempt to end his own life. Debilitating heartbreak, overwhelming existentialism, and the desire to leave it all behind unexpectedly connect these two strangers.

Skyflint by Cassandra Rose

A woman with the innate ability to channel lightning escapes her restrictive life on the ground by hopping onto an airship and into the unexplored skies above. A rollicking Steampunk play jam-packed with sword fights, shanties, and squid.

Krapp's Last Tape by Samuel Beckett

A dying writer revisits a tape he recorded at age 39 and finds a vast chasm between the man he is and the man he was. Beckett's critically acclaimed Krapp's Last Tape is a meditation on loneliness, failure, and the technology of memory.
