About the plays (all of which are sure to delight, amuse & provoke)

FUNNYLINGUS; While delivering a particularly edgy monologue, an actress is attacked by a priest.

AULD LANG SYNE: Plans to go to a New Year's Eve party are undone by a blizzard which shuts Washington, DC down. Instead, Lawrence Churchill gets a visit from an Ex with an agenda.

LIES OF HANDSOME MEN: The title says it all. This brilliant song by NYC songwriter Francesca Blumenthal has been recorded by, among others, legendary vocalist Cleo Laine. A legend in her own right, Topaz brings her own special genius to Francesca's masterpiece.

DOWN THERE: In her first work for the stage, poet Julia Press Simmons introduces us to two sisters who discuss exactly what it takes to hold on to a man.

YOU'RE GETTIN ME HOT: Getting in to Hell isn't as easy as it used to be. But there are still ways.

SIMPLE MAJORITIES: A U.S. Senator is backing an anti-gay marriage bill when his director of communications is outed on the internet by his ex-blogger-boyfriend. Everybody scrambles.
