In a conservative society, a woman forces herself into a marriage of convenience, only to discover that her true passion lies with her past lover. Her passion drags her down like a river — bringing a marriage between Love and Death.

It’s 2013, Obama has just been re-elected, and the Republican Party finally realizes it has a problem with race. In an attempt to win the 2016 presidential election, the GOP backs a candidate who is a mixture of every race on earth. A wild and surreal comedy that skewers all political
parties to the point it becomes unclear what is satire — and what is today’s frightening reality.
by Paul Zindel
directed by India Marie Paul
Featuring: Renée-Michele Brunet, Claire McClain, Rose Dolezal, and Miranda Powers
In Paul Zindel's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, we find an unfulfilled single mother raising two teenage daughters. When her younger daughter, Tillie, enters a science fair with atomic marigolds, we hope the family can overcome the "toxic world" around them — and
not get crushed beneath it.

1891. Wilhelm, Germany. A group of children struggle against the ebb and flow of their sexual awakening. As they are led by their burgeoning curiosity out of the jaws of a restrictive society, the unfettered choices they make will lead them either to adulthood — or extinction.
