About the show

A double bill of two new short plays: a film noir-eque, feminist, and fictional take on 1940’s Hollywood, and a story of two nuns in upstate New York. Part of the 2018 Dream Up Festival. More…

See it if you want to feel like you saw half a show. Each piece seemed to want a second act but didn't get it. Solid acting though.

See it if Honestly I would not recommend this show at all. A real let down. I was not even aware the first play had ended. Entire show was 20 minutes

See it if You’re interested in seeing new work in the early stages.
