On July 7, 2016, what began as a peaceful rally in Dallas in response to a slew of recent police shootings of unarmed black men by white police officers erupted in gunfire when an African American Army Reserve veteran ambushed police officers, killing five and wounding nine. In the Fall of 2016, a group of teenagers interviewed police officers, protesters, and community members about that night and the ensuing aftermath. Their stories and the company's reflections on them offer a snapshot of race relations in Dallas and the community's hope for the future.

‘Hypochondria’ explores what it is to exist simultaneously and in equal measures inside your head and as a (mostly) functioning member of society. And that feeling you feel when you notice a strange mole and it’s probably nothing, but maybe it’s something? And the dark rabbit hole that is Web MD. Among other things.
ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT:
Claire Carson is a 2014 graduate of Southern Methodist University, where she received her BFA in Theatre Studies, with an emphasis in playwriting. During her time at SMU she staged and developed five original works (Michelle with Wet Eyeballs, The Obliteration of the Alpha Couple, Eternal White Light, Chrysalis Blue, and LIFTED.) She was recently a participant working with Dallas Theatre Center’s Playwright in Residence, Will Power, on a year-long ‘Dallas Playwrights Workshop.’ Interested in devised work, she hopes to move forward theatrically by continuing to create original work that challenges the barriers of art- grafting theatre, dance, sound, specific imagery and on-stage space manipulation together to tell stories that may be ambiguous, but never vague. Currently working with groups like The Davis St. Collective and House Party Theatre. She also manages retail at a small, family run French Bakery and is passionate about pastries!

A darker cousin to Almost, Maine, John Cariani’s Love/Sick is a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays. Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this 80-minute romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, Love/Sick is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.

Back in 2010, Joe Cucinotti began adapting classic comic book stories for the stage as part of a late night theatre project he co-created along with Rover Dramawerks out of Plano called "Graphic Novelties".
At that time, he had penned an adaptation of "The Killing Joke", one of his most cherished comic book stories.
In preparation for bringing "The Killing Joke" to the stage, Joe Cucinotti penned a short one-act play based around the origins of the DC Comics character Batgirl.
After three years and with the help of a successful IndieGoGo campaign, Cucinotti has been able to stage the Alan Moore comic alongside his Batgirl one-act.
