SATISFACTION GUARANTEED - The story of a man on the verge of suicide whose last hope for satisfaction in life lies in a perfect bag of potato chips.
REALITY INCORPORATED - Have you ever wondered why reality is the way that it is? This play will reveal the answer to this and other deep questions (like why cows aren't purple). Reality Incorporated reveals a glimpse of the daily grind in the customer service department of the company that defines reality as we know it.
DIRT! - Love is blind, and triumphs over evil in this musical melodrama about the beautiful and innocent Marianne, Evil Ezechial Cramrod the Third, and a lonely piece of dirt.
