Unfringed Festival 2016
UNFringed offers the stage to daring new works from passionate artists who aren't afraid to push the boundaries. Show us your Dada, your pure form; your absurd or your ridiculous; your futurism, surrealism, expressionism, symbolism, whateverism. All kinds of works are accepted, as long as they're unhinged, unabashed, unbelievable, UNFringed.

Also...don't forget to rate your show at the end! Ballots will be provided at the theater.


Almost Awful

By Trystin S. Bailey
Produced by Trystin S. Bailey
75 minutes
Dr. Garrett Dean collects people with abhorrent urges in order to cure them in a group therapy session. It soon becomes obvious that the doctor is ill-equipped for the task ... and may be hiding an urge that is far worse than those he is trying to heal.

By Eddie Aronoff

1954. Frances Weed, a married business man living in the suburbs of NYC, is head over heels in love; unfortunately, not with his wife. Following a near-death experience, Frances journeys through a lifetime worth of challenges that puts into question his character and the series of private resolves that had formed it. Based on the classic John Cheever story, The Country Husband provides a meditation on the ramifications of the decisions we make, and the compromises we must endure to live as one with another.

Dark Play Or Stories For Boys
By Carlo Murillo
Produced by The Playing Company
120 minutes (2 hours)
Obsession grows between 2 young men who meet online, as lies and manipulations take place to ensnare the other. It culminates in a vicious but inevitable attack that changed them both. Exploding with deception, fluid identity, and sexual exploration in the world of technology, it is the collision of the virtual world and the real, where love and lies grow thick.

The King is Dead: A Play About the Trials and Tribulations of Tindering in A Modern World in Three Parts ... in Three Parts
By Timothy Bell
Produced by RAGE Readings and Mudbear Productions
60 minutes
The absurdist play about Tinder that you didn't know you didn't know you were waiting for. Or maybe you did. The King is Dead is, at its heart, a play about the desire for human connection. It incorporates three types of performance art (theatre, clowning, and live music) into an absurdist piece about the difficulties of finding romance (or something like it) in the urban electronic world.

Unturning *
Book by Gloria Makino; Music by John Thomas; Arrangements by Jonathan Fox Powers
Produced by Gloria Makino
Musical Drama
80 minutes (1 hour 20 minutes)
A musical adaptation of Thomas Hardys classic novel The Return of the Native;  however, unlike the nineteenth-century story told by a white man about an exotic young woman, Unturning lets the legendary Eustacia Vye tell the story of her tumultuous life, love, and estrangement from the polite society that condemns her as an outsider.
