 Here We Are by Dorothy Parker, directed by Deborah Supowit.  As a newlywed couple boards the train for their honeymoon.  They are both nervous about the “wedding night” and soon find their newly minted marriage is already on thin ice. Starring Jessica Schiers and Grant Kindt.

 A Nice Cup of Tea, by Jos Biggs, directed by Henry Raynor Williams.  This show takes a look at the marriage of Harold, a very uptight man with OCD, and Marion, his stay at home wife.  Marion longs for a more interesting relationship.  Find out what happens as Marion attempts to make a cup of tea for Harold.  Starring Jessica Schiers and Grant Kindt.

All in the Miming by Qui Nguyen, directed by Marius P Hanford IV.  Katherine and Frances, an urban couple, confront a mime.  A hilarious physical, mimed battle ensues.  Starring Vanessa Flaherty, Ben Medina, and Ryan Kelly.
