Bellwether, a nice, safe place to live in. That was until six-year-old Amy Draft went missing. As the investigation progresses, speculation in the media and the neighborhood takes unexpected turns. The young girl’s disappearance is not what it seems, and is only a glimpse of what lurks below the community’s perfection.

The Weed Dreams & Sustained
by Eric Kaiser
directed by Kalyl Kadri
Bread & Roses Theatre
In ‘The Weed Dreams’, the audience gathers to praise the newly appointed Great Leader at his inauguration ceremony. You’re free to stop clapping whenever you like, but everybody knows what happens to those that stop first.
In ‘Sustained’, we invite you to become a voyeur. A man and a woman wake up on a kitchen table. They don’t know each other, or themselves. How selective is your memory when you’re self-destructing?

Stoned, Stupid, & Stuck was shortlisted for the Charlie Hartill Special Reserve Fund. A scratch performance took place in competition for the award.
The plan was simple: steal the drugs, sell the drugs, get outta dodge. Rose and Sequoyah embark on a quest to change their lives, running into talking woodland animals and a mysterious old hermit along the way. Stoned, Stupid, & Stuck explores the tragic cause of the California drug culture.

Waiting for Godot
by Samuel Beckett
directed by Sari Chreiteh
The piece revolves around four, haggard looking individuals waiting for something. While they wait for the thing that brings them hope, they try to kill some time through silly games and idle discourse. It will combine some clowning elements with pieces of poetically beautiful, yet empty, text. It is a piece of site specific performance in which nothing really happens dramatically or intellectually.
