We Lovers

By Christian St. Croix

Part of the San Diego International Fringe Festival

On a late summer’s evening in a wildly lush clearing in the middle of the woods, four small-town neighbors gather to tell their best, most fantastical love stories. In the tales they tell, an angel falls in love, a woman searches a desert party full of monsters for her ghost boyfriend, an 80s slasher flick final girl makes the ultimate sacrifice, and small town lovers race to escape a falling sky. We Lovers is a blisteringly beautiful one-act play about cinematic love tales and the way they can bring the most unlikely of people together.

Coming in June

Twelfth Night of the Living Dead, or, What You Kill

By A.J. Schaar

Original Text by William Shakespeare

Directed by Kate Rose Reynolds

This is what happens to Shakespeare's original text of Twelfth Night when its heroine, its 'beating heart,' is marauding through it as a ZOMBIE.

Viola didn’t survive the shipwreck. But she still washes up in Illyria, with a single-minded purpose – brains. A loving massacre of Shakespeare’s masterful comedy, born from the realization that the original text can and does survive as its characters, one by one, turn into zombies, and that the sheer self-involvement of some characters transcends all need for earthly dialogue, and that one of the characters has, in fact, been swearing revenge for 400 years. Shakespeare meets creature-feature in this mash-up that promises to be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

June 21 - July 7, 2024 at the City Heights Performance Annex

Co-Production with Moxie Theatre

Cleopatra: a flawed yet captivating queen; an intelligent and ambitious leader; a fierce and protective mother. This modern deconstruction of Shakespeare’s classic play combines the original text with modern poetry, film and projection, and choreographed movement to create a fresh and empowering perspective on this iconic figure. Devised and performed by San Diego favorite Joy Yvonne Jones, and directed by Andréa Agosto, Cleopatra celebrates the strength and complexity of one of history’s most powerful women.
