Burn This
by Lanford Wilson

The place is a Manhattan loft shared by Anna, a dancer-choreographer, and her two gay roommates—her collaborator, Robbie, who has just been killed in a freak boating accident, and Larry, a world-weary, caustically funny young advertising executive. As the play begins, Anna is recovering from attending Robbie’s funeral, comforted by her wealthy, well-meaning boyfriend, Burton, a sci-fi screenwriter whose persistent proposals of marriage Anna finds herself unable to accept. Then, with sudden, unexpected explosiveness, Robbie’s older brother, Pale, bursts on the scene. He has come to collect his brother’s belongings—but stays on to transform the action of the play and the lives of those in it. Menacing, profane, dangerous, and yet oddly sensitive, Pale is both terrifying and fascinating and, in the end, the one who brings to Anna the unsettling but compelling love that, despite her fears and doubts, she cannot turn away.

The cast includes Sarah Zulkoski as Anna, Max Antoine as Burton, Michael Booton as Larry, and Jean-Paul Zuhur as Pale. Dustin Witte, Managing Artistic Director of OmniArts Nebraska will direct.

Two by Tennessee:
The Traveling Companion and The Chalky White Substance
by Tennessee Williams

The Traveling Companion. It is not incidental that Williams was seventy when he wrote a short play about the relationship between a younger and an older man - an inexperienced hustler full of sexual potency named Beau, and an older, insecure writer named Vieux. Emotional and personal compromise can be assumed in a relationship in which one person is a paid "assistant," "secretary;' or "companion," but here the questions of who is being used or who is using are not so simply decided. With an underlying wit, Williams reveals the common needs that keep traveling companions together. Directed by Dustin Witte.

The Chalky White Substance. Two haggard male figures, Luke and Mark, meet at the edge of a vast canyon, overlooking a dried-out riverbed, in a future where the fallout from unnamed and uncountable nuclear wars continually floats through the air. It is the chalky white substance that covers the few inhabitants as they scramble in darkness and fear, fighting for the scarce, but indispensable, resources of water, food, shelter, and human warmth. Directed by Jillian Carter.

Psycho Beach Party
by Charles Busch

“Gidget,” Frankie, and Annette beach party epics and Hitchcock psychological suspense thrillers such as “Spellbound” and “Marnie” are given a shotgun marriage. Chicklet Forrest, a teenage tomboy, desperately wants to be part of the surf crowd on Malibu Beach in 1962. One thing getting in her way, besides her unsupportive domineering mother and an indifferent surfing idol, is her tendency towards split personalities. Among them is a black check out girl, an elderly radio talk show hostess, a male model named Steve, and the accounting firm of Edelman and Edelman. Her most dangerous alter ego is a sexually voracious vixen named Ann Bowman who has nothing less than world domination on her mind.
