The Woodstock Tontine by Steffi Rubin | Thursday, Nov. 19th | 7:00PM
$10 suggested donation | REGISTER HERE

Five women met at the Woodstock Music Festival in August, 1969. Now they are reunited 50 years later at the funeral of the group’s emotional pulse, Valerie. Finding their bond in danger, they decide to invest in their friendship—literally—by forming a tontine, each contributing a substantial amount of money to ensure that the last gal standing will be taken care of financially. It is a tantalizing and morbid proposition that will test the bonds of their friendship.

Lilia by Monet Hurst-Mendoza | Saturday, November 21st | 7:00PM
$10 suggested donation | REGISTER HERE

In a small Yucatecan town circa 1960’s Mexico, 14 year-old religiously devout Lilia is forced to turn to prostitution as a means of making a living. When young Lilia develops an unconventional friendship with a compassionate new priest in town, everyone’s faith is tested. Caught between the secrets and lies that force us to question the morality of human nature, "Lilia" presents a passionate allegory about choosing between duty and desire.
