- Heads by EM Lewis
- October 3 - 6 at 7:30 p.m.
- A British Embassy worker, an American engineer, a network journalist and a freelance photographer are held captive in Iraq; as death draws close, each hostage must decide what he'll do to survive.
- "EM Lewis' beautifully acted hostage drama, set in war-torn Iraq, left out the political preaching but slowly opened up into a metaphor suggesting both the necessity and futility of hope." - Charles McNulty (LA Times)
- HEADS - A hostage drama set against the war in Iraq - played at the Blank Theatre in Los Angeles in August/September 2007. It was Critics' Pick in the LA Times, and they named it one of the top ten productions of 2007 at the end of the year. Deborah Klugman, in the LA Weekly, said about the play that "...the question of who we are beneath our posturing lands with such force, it jangles the nerves long after the play has ended." Edward Albee called the play "Provocative and wonderfully threatening."
- The Nosemaker's Apprentice
Chronicles of a Medieval Plastic Surgeon by Nick Jones / Rachel Shukert
- November 7 - 10 at 7:30 p.m.
- A young girl asks her father, where do plastic surgeons come from? What follows is a fantastical romp through pre-civilized Europe, and the medieval art and science of nosemaking. Our hero is Gavin, a young orphan rescued from a dismal existence in the Ivanhoe Workhouse for Criminally Impoverished Boys when he is apprenticed with the local Nosemaker, and eventually becomes one of the finest surgeons in Vienna, cradle of quack medicine. Using innovative skin grafting techniques and cutting edge alchemy, Gavin and his master seek only to do the work of the Almighty by restoring small appendages lost to rat bites, dueling, and syphilis. But when they are unable to help a powerful and mutilated knight recently returned from the crusades, they find their feet over the fire...literally. Hilarious, subversive, quasi-historical, and thoroughly debauched.
