In VICTORIA STATION, the taxi Controller (Kathryn Merris Scott) seeks to determine whether the Driver (Blake Buchert) is available to pick up a fare. The Driver is uncertain where and why, even perhaps who, he is, which drives the Controller to desperate lengths.
DIRECTED BY KATHRYN TALBOT.
Voice 1 (Jake Bartush), the feckless young man at the center of FAMILY VOICES, has left home to strike out on his own, but encounters only loneliness and difficulty until he is welcomed into a happier life in a mysterious mansion. His mother, Voice 2 (Rebecca McNeill Meyers) - especially bereft since the death of her husband, Voice 3 (Bob Edes Jr) - works all of her wiles to persuade her beloved boy to return.
DIRECTED BY DANIEL SCHUBERT-SKELLY.
Nicolas (Mikko), the charming torturer of ONE FOR THE ROAD, simply couldn't live with himself if he failed to make his prisoner Victor (Bartush) appreciate the burdens he bears that force him to do the awful things he must do...not only to him, but to Victor's wife Gila (Cat Wilkinson) and son Nicky (Max Canko).
DIRECTED BY ED BISHOP.
And in A KIND OF ALASKA Deborah (Claudia Baumgarten), a woman stricken with encephalitis, wakes from a sleep lasting over two decades - the 'kind of Alaska' where her mind has been since youth - to try to piece herself together, with her devoted doctor Hornby (Edes) and sister Pauline (Scott) at her bedside.
DIRECTED BY ANDY NIEMANN.
