No one likes to find themselves stuck in a relationship they no longer want to be in. Richard and Elizabeth have been stewing in stagnation, slowly calcifying into outright resentment, torn between the part of them that wants to stay in the relationship and the part of them that wants to get the hell out. But what do you do when those two sides disagree so fiercely that you find yourself in open warfare with yourself?

The Chechens

In modern Chechnya homosexuals are rumored to be held in camps. Can one family protect
their brother suspected of being gay, or will they honor kill him to protect the name of the
family? What prevails in the end-religion, politics, or love?

Moscow, 2005. Lillian, an American college student, falls ill with a mysterious disease. At the private "American" clinic, her first doctor is Spanish and the second is Russian, and soon her British ex-boyfriend has arrived through the window. As accents and cultures collide almost farcically, and time slips forwards and backwards in loops, Lillian's disease begins to mutate, causing new and different symptoms in each person it infects, turning the world topsy-turvy in its wake.

Killjoy
by Alisa Zhulina
directed by Jillian Carucci
Featuring Isuri Wijesundara, Robyn Unger, Lee Collins, and Tim Marriott
August 16-26, 2018
Opening Night: Thursday, August 16, at 8 PM

Welcome to the post-truth era. You're a CIA agent investigating a mysterious catastrophe that has changed the world. All is fair in love and war. So be on your guard. Find out what's real and what's not. Trust no one. Stay alive. Good luck.
