YES - Written & Directed by Tim Realbuto
TWO SHOWS LEFT! Saturday & Sunday.
Yes is a drama about Patrick Ness, a fading star in his 30's who now teaches private acting lessons in NYC, and the relationship that forms with his new teenage student Jeremiah. What begins as an innocent acting lesson turns into a sick game of cat and mouse, resulting in mental torture, sexual advances, and perhaps the destruction of two (possibly) innocent people.
Starring Joe Blute & Tim Realbuto
CAPTURE - Written by Emily Dinova / Directed by Gregory Cioffi

Anna Now - Hank Morris
