Includes: A Map of Virtue by Erin Courtney; We Are Proud To Present A Presentation About The Herero Of Namibia, Formerly Known As Southwest Africa, From The German Sudwestafrika, Between The Years 1884-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury; Trevor by Nick Jones; The Lily's Revenge by Taylor Mac; Alice in Slasherland by Qui Nguyen; Phoebe in Winter by Jen Silverman.

Trevor "Hugely entertaining tragicomedy... the genius of Jones's] play is how he has so cleverly humanized both characters." - Chicago Sun Times

The Lily's Revenge ..".offers so many incidental pleasures that theatrical time - always a curiously malleable element - seems to contract." - New York Times

A Map of Virtue "With a Hitchcockian sensibility, Courtney] makes psychodrama out of the mystery of what keeps people together even as imaginations and egos push them apart. Like a souvenir from a fleeting dream, this play will pass over you painlessly, and then it will linger." - Backstage
