ROCKPAPERWORLD by Jaisey Bates

THE HUNT(s) by Tori King Rice
A young successful lawyer returns home to rural Indiana, hoping to address concerns for her mothers mental health, and finds that the problem is of much bigger, more mythic than she could have imagined. This beautifully simple, two-woman play is written by San Diego's very own Tori King Rice.
Directed by Leigh Akin, the cast includes Anna Sandor and Ruth Carlson Russell
A SEMICOLON IS A DOUBLE by Larry Rinkel
is about two seemingly different high school boys who bond over grammar and each share the secret they've been hiding.
Directed by Kristen FOgle, the cast includes Andrew Dean Pearson and Wilfred Paloma
SQUIRRELS IN A KNOTHOLE by Peter J. Stavros
is an existential scamper examining the vapid minutiae of Corporate America seen through the nutty perspective of some disgruntled squirrels that aren't too dissimilar from the humans they scrutinize.
Directed by Adam Parker, the cast includes Emily Candia, Edgar Diaz-Gutierrez and Marc Sylwestrzak
SEVERANCE by Phil Darg
When job security is more important than self respect.
Directed by James P. Darvas, the cast includes Aaron Lugo and Allison McDonald
STAIN by Oded Gross
Dave is trying to prepare for his Ku Klux Klan meeting. He is up for a promotion in the ranks and wants to make a good impression. Unfortunately, after his wife has a laundry mishap, his future in the Klan may be on the line. Stain is a funny look at some ridiculous points of view being proliferated in our country today.
Directed by Hannah Logan, the cast includes Marc Sylwestrzak and Tara Sampson
