New works by our master of fine arts candidates presented in repertory examining love and loss, truth and reality: Two broken hearts navigate a complex budding relationship; a small disagreement threatens a decade-long marriage; and an ordinary guy finds himself in extraordinary circumstances.


BOBBY JAMES by Anne Marie Cammarato
directed by Robert Hedley


Bobby James has a story to tell and he thinks you need to hear it. In post-fact America, this ordinary guy finds himself in extraordinary circumstances and wonders whose experiences actually represent the truth. And he wants to ask you: what do loyalty, trust and heroism mean to you?


EIGHT MINUTES, TWENTY SECONDS by John Yearley
directed by Harriet Power


A happily-married couple suffers a wrenching loss they can’t bear even to mention – until one night, a chance encounter at a party opens the floodgates. As Ruth and Bo banter, bait, and wound each other, we witness the crazy highs and lows of intimacy…and the surprising ways we can stumble back to those we love.


WAITING FOR RAIN by Mark Costello
directed by Amy Blumberg


Jenna and Ryan are built to love each other, and so they drink, and dance, and buy a Dalmatian named Buttons. Jenna's wheelchair? Not a problem. Ryan's drinking? Utterly charming.

Until it isn't. When old demons intrude in their new lives, Ryan and Jenna look to one another for answers, support, and ultimately, blame. Waiting for Rain is a piercing look into how easy it is to reject the love we deserve.
