Clouds 8 & 10 - by Anne Walaszek (class of 2012)
It’s opening night and six freshman theatre students are backstage preparing for the quickest quick change of their lives. A memory play, Clouds 8 & 10 reflects and refracts the formation of friendship, identity—and one show-stopping dress—in the moments that transpire when one young woman looks within to see what’s passed and welcome what’s to come.
All to Ourselves - by Karl Gfall (class of 2011)
What is “happily ever after” really like? Is it the manifestation of a beautiful ideal—or just an existential hell in which playwrights and audiences alike have trapped famous couples from the greatest love stories ever told? Imago Lost is a meta-dramatic exploration of the moments that follow just after the curtain drops and the lights come up.

Caught within the confines of this somewhat unconventional locale,Taking the Stairs asks us to consider what it means to live together and discover a bit of ourselves in the neighbors that are just beyond our walls.
