Convergence-continuum says
Starting Feb 12 and running through Dec 19, convergence-continuum will present a jam-packed season of innovative, cutting-edge theatre at the intimate Liminis theater in Cleveland's historic Tremont neighborhood.

SPECIAL PRE-SEASON EVENT: NEOMFA PLAYWRIGHTS FESTIVAL – Feb 12-21
one new full-length play and two new one-act plays by three different local MFA playwrights. Produced in collaboration with the Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts (NEOMFA) in Creative Writing and Cleveland State University.

SERIES ONE: TAKING RISKS.
In this three-play series the styles vary significantly, but the common thread is that in each play the characters purposefully take action on extreme, risky choices, either to greatly rewarding or disastrous results. The plays themselves are also all edgy, risky choices in terms of subject matter, form and presentation style. All three plays will be Ohio premieres.

ISAAC’S EYE by Lucas Hnath, March 20-April 11 - Quirky, funky send-up of historical dramas - Directed by Clyde Simon

WOLVES by Steve Yockey, May 8-30 - Sharp, darkly funny urban fairy tale - Directed by Cory Molner

THE TRAIN PLAY, or The Reckless Ruthless Brutal Charge of It by Liz Duffy Adams, June 26-July 18 - Comic-poetic collision course with time, history and a supernatural climax - Directed by Clyde Simon

SERIES TWO: MAKING IT UP AS YOU GO.
The plays of the second series take provocative, thoughtful and amusing looks at the frequently risky choices and the resulting adjustments that people make in fashioning their lives and relationships.

TEAR IT OFF by Mike Geither, August 14-Sept 5 - Reality-bending world premiere by Cleveland playwright - Directed by Karen Randoja

THE HAPPY SAD by Ken Urban (regional premiere), Oct 2-24 - Comedy with songs looks at tangled romantic attachments - Directed by Tyson Douglas Rand

BOB: A LIFE IN FIVE ACTS by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb (Ohio premiere), Nov 20-Dec 19 – Comic mix of epic theatre and vaudeville takes on the American Dream - Directed by Geoffrey Hoffman
