Carry Me – Evalina “Wally” Carbonell

An original dance work conceived and created by Philly-based artist Evalina “Wally” Carbonell, Carry Me is for those who carry us, those we carry, and all that we carry inside. Five women imprint themselves onto the space with softness and force, leading us down pathways that reveal the dance within.


Life In Eight Parts  – Spencer VentrescaLife In Eight Parts

Life in Eight Parts is a semi-improvisational, semi-sketch, two-man show that attempts to shed light on life’s most important issues. Given their “many” years of life experience, Nolan and Spencer explore the many facets of life’s unending issues while unraveling the inner workings of their own personal relationship.


A Vacation – Poison Apple Initiative

Colton loves life and makes the most of it. He’s travelled all over the world, appreciating culture and fostering connections with people. He’s explored North Korea, Crimea, and Afghanistan, and—now that the borders are open—he’s going to Purgatory. A dark comedy about manifesting and destiny.


Love Stories – Denise McCormack

Master storyteller Denise McCormack brings to life literary and traditional tales to capture the essence of women’s issues and issues of the heart. This one-woman stand-up sparks a flood of emotions and memories, as it revisits secret and soulful nuances of motherhood, childhood, family, and life—the dynamics of love. Intended for adults.

Starting Over Kayleigh Taylor

Kay is a survivor of depression, addiction, and setbacks. Using words and song she’ll take you on a roller-coaster ride of horrific to wonderful experiences. Kay learned to accept herself, to love others, and that what matters most happens within us, not to us. Be inspired to see this in yourself too. Ticket cost includes dinner.



Bon Iver Fights a Bear  – Doug Williams

A fantasia based on Bon Iver writing his seminal debut album in a secluded cabin in the winter woods, told through the eyes of a crazy fucking grizzly bear who thinks his music sucks. Starring singer-songwriter Emily Schuman in a dirty hipster beard.



Song of My Self-Care Jimmy Grzelak

Be Hot Now. A workout for your abs and existential dread. Based on a long-lost self-help health-and-beauty book by Walt Whitman. Featuring theology, poetry, and original electro-pop music. Led by Jimmy Grzelak, veteran artist of U.S. and Canadian fringe festivals and “winningly offbeat imagination” (Washington Post).
