Thursday, December 8 | Have You Seen Alice?: Have You Seen Alice? is a whimsical thriller.

Dripping with surreal and poignant images, the drama is a moving allegory for the universal struggle we all feel, caught between the daily battles to get up and go to work, pay bills, plan for the future, and the larger global issues that seem so distant and impossible to resolve.
Friday, December 9 | Stop Kiss: Set in New York City, Stop Kiss tells the story of a new friendship between Callie and Sara that throws them both into unexplored territory.

Stop Kiss won the GLAAD Media Award for Best New York Production and was on the Top 10 Plays lists of the New York Times, New York Newsday, and New York Daily News.
