Their Great Magic
by Terence Patrick Hughes

Acclaimed novelist, John Irwin, and his wife suffered a terrible car accident a year ago. He survived, she did not. Helen’s ghost now constantly haunts John, keeping him from writing and sleeping and fueling a long alcoholic binge. His daughter and her new boyfriend arrive to try and save John from his downward spiral, only to be caught up in a wild war of words and wit that reaches far beyond our material world. A comic romp of a ghost story wrapped around a drama about love, death, and family.

Featuring: Wil Anderson, Mourka Meyendorff, Hank Neimark, David Smilow, Sigrid Wise

Wilde About Whitman
by David Simpatico

In the nineteenth century, homosexuals were purged from the language and literature of the American Dream. Oscar Wilde and Walt Whitman, two gay icons of 19th century literature, dealt with this imposed invisibility in polar opposite ways.

On January 18, 1882, Oscar Wilde, 27, and Walt Whitman, 62, spent three hours together behind closed doors in Whitman’s home in Camden, New Jersey. Wilde About Whitman is the story, equal parts historical record and theatrical conjecture, of what they might have said, and done, behind those closed doors.

Featuring: Michael Iannucci, Joshuah Patriarco, Taylor Steward
