Slaughter City

Slaughter+City+-+Orig.png

Directed by Jer Adrianne Lelliot
June 23rd - July 14th, 2018

Naomi Wallace’s prescient 1995 drama follows the lives of a group of workers laboring at a slaughterhouse. As the work gets tougher and more dangerous, their wages are cut, and benefits reduced. Wallace weaves together instances of consensual abuses and permissions, tragedies and triumphs to bring together often disparate stories of race, gender, and class.

Vendetta Chrome

VC+11.4+PNG.png

Directed by Sara Lyons 
Nov 24th - December 15th, 2018
the Lex Theatre 

Vendetta, a late bloomer at a Victorian girls' school, must save her friends and her family from a legacy of trouble -- and it's all in the dance moves. In the West Coast premiere of Sylvan Oswald's melodrama-farce, spirited movement sequences by Milka Djordjevich (Anthem) meet today's feminist rage. Director Sara Lyons (I'm Very Into You) leads a female and nonbinary cast through the lightness and the darkness. Oswald's Vendetta Chrome is "a saucy spoof on the inane mannerisms of Victorian education for young ladies with a pointed message." (Variety)
