EMPTY ALL THE BOXES by Jazz Trice
Directed by Tasha Cooke
Sometimes searching for answers from others forces us to reflect upon our own flaws and ask questions of ourselves: Did you say it? I love you? I can’t imagine my life without you? In Empty All the Boxes, people are thus driven to mend broken relationships and find new appreciation of life.
THE BLUE JAY’S SONG by Daniel Jordan
Directed by William MacInnis
One man, broken into three pieces, searches for meaning while leaving everyone else behind. His path leads to peace in solidarity and the pain of love and separation.
FOOLS AFLOAT by Kristopher Ide
Directed by Olufunmilayo Alabi
Where do we locate our reasons for living? How do we triumph over despair? Can we ever reconcile the conflicting impulses toward light and dark within? Fools Afloat asks these questions when a young writer deals with love and loss, experiences the power of forgiveness, and goes for a ghostly boat ride with Ernest Hemingway and Adolph Hitler.
