A story about two very special individuals, each isolated in their individual ways, who find solidarity in each other through a "chance" encounter.

Cast: Paul David Sibblies, Lucia Belini, and Keli Laing
Director: Jesse Wakemann
A dark comedy that looks at what happens when 3 young New Yorkers come together after a night on the town and what transpires when their skewed views of NYC become a factor. We take a look at how NYC affects us all differently and what actions we will take to preserve our own wants, needs and even personal lives. Is everyone "single" in New York? Does everyone have their own screwed up vices they can't shake? Or is NYC a melting pot of Peter Pans that just can't seem to grow up?
RUBBER DOG by Matthew Dunehoo

Director: Matthew Dunehoo
"How elastic is your leash?" asks Q, the host of the latest home game craze that's sweeping the eastern seaboard. Rubber Dog is a game where the rules are vague but the stakes are very real and the secret to success entails obeying your impulses and embracing the irrational. But when vulnerability is a competitive advantage, at what point do we defeat ourselves by going for what we want? And will anyone even notice?
