A Life Enriching Community
A Play by Philip Middleton Williams

Adam and Paul, a gay couple in their sixties, settle into their new home, a retirement community in Florida, and come to terms with their new situation, the changes that life has brought them, and the baggage that they have brought with them as well.

Directed by Isa Leigh
In NON-REFUNDABLE two women in love, tired of pretending to be “just friends who work together” at their school back in Bible Belt Kentucky, take off for a vacation, hoping to “exhale”. But it feels like the Stasi is watching them as fiercely as the folks back home. But an unlikely invasion of their hotel room teaches them both that sometimes the only way to get what you need is to say no.
