About the Show:
This series is a professional but community-based project, with affordable tickets and the shows will be performed in locations where "theatre typically isn't" such as coffee shops, hotels, bed and breakfasts, bars/breweries, shops, restaurants, cafes, and more! All plays in this series are either world premieres or have never been fully produced.


Featuring two plays:

The Bud Light  © Post Game Show  By David Fletcher (Butte, MT) 
Synopsis: this is a light comedy in which play-by-play analysts give a post-game analysis of a football game.

Rescue Mission by Germaine Shames (Tucson, AZ) 
Synopsis: this is a bittersweet romantic drama that centers a divorced middle-aged academic who journeys to the wilds of Uganda to save a childhood sweetheart more interested in apes than in men, but it begs the question, which one needs more rescuing?
