Read the press release.

The Oregon Trail

Written by Bekah Brunstetter
Directed by Claire Reinhart
September 14 – November 4, 2017

It’s 1997 and Jane is trapped in her middle school computer lab playing “The Oregon Trail” for what feels like hours. The game becomes life and rips her back to the trail, 1848, where she travels in a covered wagon with her great-great grandmother. As the game transitions from past to present and back again, Now-Jane’s and Then-Jane’s sadnesses are delicately juxtaposed in this play-meets-video game about depression, Then and Now.

De Troya

Written by Caridad Svich
Directed by Rinska Carrasco-Prestinary
May 10 – June 20, 2018

A mysteriously wounded girl washes on shore and meets young Mara on the riverbank. Worried sisters Lupe and Lena wonder if tonight is the night that their niece will disappear without a trace. Nostalgic Horacio drives his restless grandson away with another rambling story from his childhood. Boiling under the surface of a violent city, two families wrestle with rebellion, regret, and loss of faith. De Troya is an urban mythical tale about how the weight of our memories can create an insatiable longing for salvation.
