SPIN by Madelyn Sergel | Thursday, Sept. 24th | 7:00PM

On doctor’s orders to get in better shape, Fancy joins a gym. At her first indoor cycling class, as she begins spinning her legs, her thoughts start spinning as well. Past and current interactions are played out as spin instructor Angel becomes her combative and distant mother Gwen, her sister, and, eventually even Fancy herself, while another student morphs into her son, her father, and Spencer, a student she counsels at her job at a therapeutic day school. As her mind unspools these complex relationships, her body working harder and harder, Fancy confronts the biggest question of her life, “Can you love someone but not like them?” Making peace with her body sends her down the road of making peace with her past, and eventually, peace with herself.

Over the past year and a half, life has become nearly out of control for Sam. She's buried under work, saving to buy a house, and trying her best to keep her marriage together. To top it all off, she's taken in her contentious mother, who has been diagnosed with dementia. Sam longs to be free of her burdens. Will she get the future she's always dreamed of or will she be forced to stand face-to-face with something she never saw coming: her present?

Eggs on Ice by Kristine M. Reyes | Saturday, Sept. 26th | 7:00PM

Denise is the top sales/marketing rep at Eggs on Ice, a premier egg freezing clinic, who believes in the company’s mission to help give women more reproductive choices. Led by the enigmatic and cocksure Dr. Freeze, the company is in a position to become a full-service facility for all fertility needs, second to none. As Denise takes the audience on a tour of the company and its clientele, she starts noticing strange new policies being put into place and begins to question if something more sinister is at play. Set in the very near future, Eggs on Ice is a satirical play about the egg freezing industry and how it markets to young professional women, preying and capitalizing on their fears and insecurities under the guise of helping them to “have it all”.
