Click by Jacqueline Goldfinger follows a hacktivist named Fresh, who turns industrial espionage into high art. As this virtual Banksy takes over the global imagination, the man who stole her life develops a technology that sends the two of them on a collision course with corporate empires. A cyberpunk drama for the #MeToo era. A story of trauma, transformation, and reclaiming your identity.

Described by Brecht as "a gangster play that would recall certain events familiar to us all," Arturo Ui is a witty and savage satire of the rise of Hitler - recast by Brecht into a fictional, small-time Chicago gangster's takeover of the city's greengrocery trade in the 1930's.

Christmas is fast approaching for Nora Helmer, the happiest little housewife in Anytown, USA.  She has a beautiful home and three lovely children, and of course, none of it would be possible without her husband Trip.  But this macaroon-loving mother has a secret she wants no other soul to know.  The Dollhouse Project is an ensemble-devised 1950's take on Ibsen's classic play (with a little Lady Gaga sprinkled in for good measure).

Kid has just moved clear across the country to live with her gay dad in San Francisco.  So she's done what any enterprising teenager would do - she's set up cameras to spy on and blog about her dad's neighbors.  And it's not long before she uncovers an unexpected conspiracy.  It's Hitchcock's Rear Window through the eyes of a teenage blogger.

1920's New York.  As America returns to normalcy, one young woman feels suffocated by all that society expects her to do, say, and think.  Only when she dares to scribble outside the lines does she find peace and freedom.  But it comes at a cost.
