*Central Florida Premiere
The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a feared Irish terrorist who has no qualms of torturing, mutilating and murdering his enemies. The one life he does value is that of his beloved black cat, Wee Thomas. After Wee Thomas is found with a crushed skull, a heartbroken Mad Padraic becomes hell-bent on finding the person responsible and the vividly gruesome violence and carnage that ensues makes for an extremely dark, yet hilarious comedy that explores the absurdity of political violence.

*The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told (4M/5F)

By Paul Rudnick

Directed by Tommy Wooten

Co-Produced with Tim Evanicki Productions

A biblical and modern day tale of the relationships of Adam & Steve and Jane & Mabel as directed by the character of a stage manager. Act One covers the Garden of Eden, an ark, a visit with a highly rambunctious Pharaoh and finally even the Nativity. Along the way, Mabel and Adam invent God, but Jane and Steve are skeptical. Act Two is Christmas Eve in Adam & Steve’s fabulously decorated NYC apartment where a marriage is officiated by a Jewish lesbian Rabi in a wheelchair from a cable access tv network. Surprises are revealed and heartfelt holiday warm fuzzies happen.


Adam:20s – 30s, Any Race: Fair, attractive, wide-eyed, and innocent with a slim yet athletic or toned build. Adam is overwhelmingly and passionately curious and in love with the world’s possibilities. *This role required brief, partial nudity.

*Jane: 20s – 30s, Any Race: Hefty, proudly and impressively butch, boisterous, and tough-minded with a short fuse. Jane is also warm-hearted, generous, earthy, and wonderfully sane.


*Mable:   20s – 30s, Any Race: Jane’s better half. Thin, sprite-like, classic beauty. Mabel always responds emotionally to any situation; she is tremulous, hopeful, and sympathetic to everyone.

By Lisa VillaMil
Director: Tara Kromer


Nationalism is on the rise, but tigers have been saved from extinction through domestication.  Tradeoffs.

Refugees are pouring in, but the Prime Minister is promising a crackdown at the border.  He’s not lacking support.

Amidst it all, Phoebe is turning invisible.  Again.  And she has no idea why.  The fact that she’s pregnant only complicates matters.

Meanwhile, Dinah is turning into a beast, becoming a ferocious manifestation of herself in pursuit of her lost son.  Refugees seeking asylum, they were separated when rushing the border to the City.

Marginalized, victimized and villainized, both women find that they have two choices in this world ruled by Men: to be tame, or to be wild.  And frankly, it’s not clear which is the better option.  Especially when Dinah takes her wildness to the streets, and begins attacking civilians.

Wilds is a surrealist play about intolerance, whose plot draws from social and political events of the past year, including Brexit, the United States’ election, Poland’s attempted total-ban on abortion, and the Syrian refugee crisis, particularly in relation to Hungary. It is told in a series of short interwoven scenes of various plotlines.


*PHOEBE TERRA: (F/30’s.)  A woman who is turning invisible.  Tame.

*DINAH BITAR:   (F/20-30s.)  A woman who is turning into a tiger.  Wild.

Dinah should not be Caucasian.

RADIO HOST & ZOO RECORDING:                 Female voices.


MEN:All Men are played by the same two men.


MAN 1:

  1. WHITE: 30’s.  Tetrachromatic. Concerned with appreances.

OFFICER: Any age.

BOSS: 40’s.

COP: Distrusting.



PRIME MINISTER:  Any age.  Comfortably in Power. Demagogue.


DOCTOR: 40’s Female-but not caricature.

BOY: 8-12.


REFUGEE: An older man without a home.
By Paris Crayton lll
