Especially with a show like The Night Watch, which is a play that constantly has scenes bleeding into each other

In NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY, Chad Beckim shows how a young woman's addiction to opioids affects not only her, but those who seek to help her. Impeded by her own doubts and insecurities, in a town where people are admired for their efforts to leave, the downward spiral of her life pulls in those who had the good intent of helping her. Relationships are pushed aside, hope is dashed and free will momentarily shines through in her attempts to get better, only to be swallowed up again by need. Beckim's play is an extraordinary story of ordinary people - a family already familiar with less-than-perfect circumstances, now faced with a loved one's illness that seeks to bring down everyone with her.

Adobe theatre's An Adobe Christmas Carol brings the spirit of the holidays to Albuquerque. With a small cast of only 13 playing multiple roles, the heartfelt production kicked off the season starting on November 22nd. The play, which is adapted and directed by Pete Parkin, takes the classic tale of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol and modernizes it many ways, giving the production even more depth. In the play, a group of homeless people break into an abandoned theater on Christmas Eve in order to find shelter from the cold. While they are getting settled in the theatre and looking for food or blankets and costumes for warmth, they come across a copy of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Rather than using the book as kindling for a fire, the group decide to perform the classic tale and act it out in order to distract themselves from the cold, using what props and costumes they find in the abandoned theatre.
