Festival A includes "The Scarlet Savior" and "The Great Cat Massacre."
In "The Scarlet Savior," Maggie Sullivan, a small town superhero, gets hired by Superheros Inc. to take over as New York City's first female superhero in the wake of the famous Powerfist's murder by New York's villain, The Siren. But life isn't a comic book and Maggie soon learns that the lines between heroes and villains aren't so clearly drawn.
"The Great Cat Massacre" is a tale about classism, sexism, and what happens when the rich choose to believe alternative facts with eager hysteria. Set in 18th century Paris, this show follows two apprentice printers who convince the neighborhood that their beloved cats are possessed by demons. The resulting slaughter is the worst event of feline history.
