An Unauthorized View Of History Or The World As A Concentration Camp
Lady Macbeth discovers that Coma-ander is going to attend the premiere of a contemporary art exhibition and goes in his search. The Coma-ander hasn't just shown up in his very best shape and lived to update the most twisted forms of authoritarianism; he also suspects that Lady Macbeth's theater is not understood. It's to Lady Macbeth's credit that the discursive enigmas worsen the confusion of the Comma-ander: the lack of race purity, the linguistic corruption of humanity, and her use of the Spanish and English language to emphasize miscegenation take him indirectly to draw his demons and to expose his worst ideas in public. He is sure that Lady Macbeth came to kill him and attacks his officers for letting her in his security bubble.

American dancer Gabrielle Revlock teams up with Russian dancer Aleksandr Frolov in a playful dance seeking to bridge the divide between them.
Described by Frolov as "a truth or dare using a peach, a megaphone, two chairs, and a tablecloth," Show No Show charts the process of two people getting to know each other for the first time. Unpredictable and entrancing, they use each other and the space to mine the complexities of opening oneself up to another, laying bare the hilarious, maddening, and heartbreaking feelings that come with it.

Skank is an experimental play that uses comedy to open up a dialogue about sexual assault and the long-term effects assault has on victims. It's a one-woman show that follows protagonist Della through the evening of her 23rd birthday, on which she is stationed at a nearly empty bar into the wee hours of the morning. Skank is about sexual assault, victim shaming, and PTSD, sure...but it's also about connection — about the desperate need for someone to listen, to hear her story. It is equally comedic as it is intense, using humor as an entryway into this heavy material.
Project Y Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Truth/Dare by Emmy nominee Tori Keenan-Zelt. The play was selected for Kilroy's Long List in 2014.
Truth/Dare revolves around a trio of tween girls who live in their own world built of basements, secrets, loves, and backyard ghosts — until the last sleepover of the summer. High school looms, with the promise and threat of reinvention, and the group fractures as shifting beliefs and identities collide in a traumatic accident that none of them can explain. Four years later, questions and accusations fly as the survivors revisit the scene of the "crime" and try to understand what happened, what they have lost, and how to live now.
Jenna and Kate are best friends...until one drunken night, Kate ends up in the bathroom with Derek, the guy Jenna has a crush on. Afterwards, Kate says she was raped, while Derek claims it was consensual. A play about sexual violence, rape culture, and what it means to listen.
