We’re a little later than usual announcing our new series for the fall
but it has been a worthwhile wait. Jim Marino and I always say that
this is our best line up yet and once again that is true. Here it is:
All peoples everywhere are dependent on only five things: the atmosphere, water, food, energy, and community, with other people as well as with biodiversity in thriving ecosystems. Sustainability is 5 documentary musicals about those five topics, with another on the economics of sustainability and the sustainability of economics, and a final answering the psychological question “we know what we need to do so why aren’t we doing it?” More »

About the play: Amy is a directionless woman just turned 30, still watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer reruns in her basement apartment and living in the shadow of her more successful younger sister.

With a mixture of heartwarming honesty and snappy observations, Amy discovers an inner strength she never knew she had and maybe (just maybe) finally beats her sister at something. More »
