Event extras: 

Program 1 (May 13, May 15 and 2pm May 17)

  • Much Ado About Mathletes: An all-girls mathletes team (that ponders in iambic pentameter) is shaken to its core when asked to do the unthinkable: Let a boy join their team.
  • Knife Skills: One girl, one chef's knife, one moment of reckoning.
  • Inay’s Wedding Dress: Two Filipino sisters separated by coasts, age, class and sexual orientation clash over a traditional Wedding Dress left to them by their mother.
  • The Night Bus: Stuck in the midst of memories and dreams, a working-class man realizes his gilded life is quickly peeling away.

Program 2 (May 14, May 16 and 5pm May 17)

  • Turn Your Head Away: A boy. A girl. And a mask.
  • My Time Has Come: The show must go on. Or must it? Or what if this moment is the one we’ve all been waiting for?
  • The African Spaghetti: Somewhere in the African Serengeti/Spaghetti, love and sanity are put to the test as we join a colonial family on a wild romp through romanticized Africa.
