No Second Acts: A Collection Of Short American Lives

Synopsis:
F. Scott Fitzgerald said that there are no second acts in American lives, and the Brick sets out to prove him right with this collection of one-act plays. Taking on themes of U.S. history, politics and culture, these little nuggets of Americana take full advantage of our constitutional right to free speech in their wild, varied and often uncouth takes on our national experience.

Piper Mckenzie's Dainty Cadaver

Synopsis:
18 playwrights. 3 plays. One performance of each. Piper McKenzie's Dainty Cadaver is an Exquisite Corpse-style playmaking project in which multiple playwrights collaborate on a single work without knowing what the hell the others are doing. Each writer reads the previous scene, writes a new scene, and passes it on to the next writer - who doesn't see any of what came earlier. Beautiful madness ensues. For its inaugural edition, Piper McKenzie will present one-night-only performances of three new plays written in this unique collaborative style, with results ranging from inspired chaos to eerie synchronicity - all tied together by the unique voices of 18 hot playwrights, divided into three teams and staged by three directors. the teams and their performance details are as follows: TEAM A: Fri 1/28, 8pm: Johnna Adams, Eric Bland, Jeff Lewonczyk, Mac Rogers, Crystal Skillman, Art Wallace. Directed by Jordana Williams. TEAM B: Sat 1/29, 8pm: Danny Bowes, Matt Freeman, Qui Nguyen, Carolyn Raship, August Schulenburg, Alexis Sottile. Directed by Hope Cartelli. TEAM C: Sun 1/30, 3pm: Maggie Cino, James Comtois, John DeVore, Cara Francis, Rich Lovejoy, Justin Maxwell. Directed by John Hurley.

Your Lithopedion

Synopsis:
