Chris Dosen (freshman) directs The Philadelphia by David Ives

A young man in a restaurant who has fallen into "a Philadelphia," a Twilight Zone-like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for. His only way out of the dilemma? To ask for the opposite of what he wants.

Cast of The Philadelphia: Al - Grant Remmen (graduate student); Mark - Chinmay Nirkhe (freshman); Waitress - Rebecca Tang (sophomore)

Dan Ilyin (freshman) directs Here We Are by Dorothy Parker

Set in the early 1930s in a Pullman car on a train to New York City, Here We Are explores through dialogue the already testy relationship between a newly married young man and woman setting out on their honeymoon. The play is adapted from Dorothy Parker's short story by the same name.

Cast of Here We Are: He - Jeremy Brouillet (graduate student); She - Mary Do (freshman)

Dongyang "Clark" Kang (graduate associate) directs Flop Cop by Dorothy Cunningham

Surreal black comedy: a cop is summoned to subdue an out of control playwright, who has set up a siege in a theater, and is threatening to deliver his monologue.

Cast of Flop Cop: Officer Murphy, Playwright

Dongyang "Clark" Kang (graduate associate) directs:

Timon & Pumbaa are Dead by writer Manan Arya (graduate student)
A Forgotten Cause by writer Juan Diego Palomino (sophomore)
