A festival of homemade performance produced by Radial Theater Project January 30-February 28, 2015 Full schedule at: http://radialtheater.org/performance-schedule Featured productions: After All / World Premiere Mike Mathieu and Ryan Sanders / Rock Paper Theater Two residents of the distant post-apocalypse navigate life among their fellow scavengers and schemers. Social status is won and lost, gods are conjured and defied. It’s a pretty bleak world, where birch bark pays the bills and soup is always for dinner. Bullygirl / World Premiere Jennifer Jasper Jennifer Jasper delves into the darkness of adolescence to pick at the bones of her self-esteem. Told in her unique voice mixing pathos and hilarity, Jasper spits out tales of bullies, victims in plaid stretch pants, a shunning, and a young teacher’s near breakdown. The Death of Brian A Zombie Odyssey (episode 1) Ides of Undead March (episode 2, World Premiere) Ricky Coates / theater simple An award-winning, one-man zombie show that has been frightening audiences across the continent with its first installment, A Zombie Odyssey. For Locally Grown, theater simple is debuting the next episode, Ides of Undead March! Dragon Lady / World Premiere Sara Porkalob It is the year of the Water Dragon and the eve of Grandma Maria's 75th birthday. By the light of the karaoke machine, fueled by pork dumplings and diet Pepsi, she shares a dark secret from her Filipino gangster past with one lucky grandchild. El Hijo Prodigo (Prodigal Son) José Amador The story of a man’s return to his native Puerto Rico after an absence of 22 years. He is soon reunited with—and beguiled by—the history and culture of the island state he once called home. Free Desiree Amontaine Aurore / Ten Auras Productions Desiree and Shauna are two rebellious sisters growing up in the 1970s. When Hollywood comes calling, Shauna is sure she will be Blaxploitation star Pam Grier's successor. But is Shauna ready for Hollywood? Is Hollywood ready for Shauna? Kook / World Premiere K. Brian Neel A darkly comedic peek into the multiverse of an average joe. His boss is eating his soul. He’s in love with someone in the audience, but that relationship is loaded with issues. A struggle with the worst enemy a person could possibly have: oneself. Sting Is My Spirit Animal / World Premiere Yana Kesala / Radiant Moxie He has her wrapped around his finger. Every little thing he does is magic. If she ever lost her faith in him, she’d have to put on the red light. Well okay, not really…because if you love somebody, set them free. Blonde with the Wind / New play reading Keira McDonald / written by Kelleen Conway Blanchard Scarlett O’Hara wakes up abandoned in a modern day mental hospital far from her beloved Tara, farther still from that dashing scoundrel Rhett Butler. To free herself, Scarlett must let go of her past and face her terrible secret.
