You Are What You

A New Play by Mora V. Harris

Content Warning: Eating Disorders, Death, Suicide

ABOUT THE PLAY - Competitive eater, Francie, is desperate to find a way to help her younger sister, Trisha, eat. When celebrity chef, Electra Sinclair, arrives on their doorstep, Francie thinks she may have found just the thing to set Trisha on the road to recovery. Yet Trisha's illness worsens as she begins seeing visions of a talking Pot Roast, and Francie becomes distracted by an ex hell-bent on exploiting her in a cogent work of non-fiction. The sisters struggle to take care of each other and nourish themselves in this comedy about learning from the things we crave.

The Merry Wives of Windsor

by William Shakespeare

ABOUT THE PLAY - What better way to celebrate the holidays than smashing the patriarchy! For Mistresses Page and Ford, Christmastime is stressful enough without dealing with drunken fondlers and mistrusting husbands - and they are OVER IT. Holiday trickery and woman power abound in this Shakespearean classic you won't want to miss.
