Callaway by Phillip Gerson
Directed by Kristin Skye Hoffmann
In this play, inspired by Raymond Carver's short story Chef's House, a recovering alcoholic finds himself at a picture-perfect beach house on the Florida Panhandle, striving to revitalize his marriage and earn back his wife's trust. However, it's when his fellow AA member, now landlord, decides to give the house to his recently widowed daughter, that this mending and hopefulness is put to the test.

Modern Day Alchemy by Ashleigh Catsos Yager
Directed by John Lampe
Two young couples buy a house together. An old man prepares to end his life. Modern Day Alchemy is a play about growing up, or choosing not to, and the same elemental desire that fueled the early alchemists in their laboratories which now connects these characters: the search for truth, meaning and perhaps a little magic.
