When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires.

Buyer & Cellar
by Jonathan Tolins
directed by Thom Schnarre

featuring Coy Wentworth
and Evan Seggebruch (Wednesday June 20 performance)

This play makes storytelling magic, as we hear about the experiences of Alex More, who has a unique, if lonely, job working in the personalized mall in the Malibu cellar of a beloved megastar. Things take a turn when his only customer (the “Funny Lady” herself) visits the basement and befriends her young clerk. It’s a funny and fanciful tale of decadence and isolation in a make-believe universe that only a chosen few are allowed to enter. The Chicago Tribune says the show “is . . . a lot of laugh-out-loud fun.”

The Aliens
by Annie Baker
directed by Jace Jamison

Jasper: Jake Fava
KJ: Tommy Howie
Evan: Robert Bradley

The New York Times called this “a gentle and extraordinarily beautiful new play.” The action unfolds in the grubby back lot of a Vermont coffee shop, where two young(ish) guys hang out regularly to hash out the ups and downs of life itself. When a new employee joins them out back, the seemingly sordid pair befriends the impressionable younger guy. Through deeply heartfelt storytelling, song singing, fireworks, and a nip of psilocybin tea, the bond they make will last the rest of their lives. But the summer has to end eventually.

The Pulitzer-winning play deals with economic downturn and racial strife in the working-class factory town of Reading, Pennsylvania. The play jumps between the years 2000 and 2008 to tell the story of tensions among friends and coworkers that erupt during a labor struggle. The play has been described as "a powerful and emotional look at identity, race, economy and humanity" and has been compared to the writing of August Wilson and Clifford Odets.
