The Unlikely Theater Company Announces its 2008-09 Season

Hop the Fence


A Season of new plays, ideas and shenanigans


And Then She Left Me by Alice Trumbo (November 2008)

John's girlfriend has left him and his only recourse is to engage his friend Cameron, a documentary filmmaker, to find out why.  This production is part of a feature length film of the same name shooting simultaneously.


John: You can find out. You've done this thing. You're suppose to be able to do this thing.

Cameron: Should I shoot you now, drunk and sloppy and sick? I mean, maybe that's it, right? Maybe we can say this is why she left you?

John: Shoot it all.


Last Days of Blue Desire, a play with music by Michael Lia (January 2009)

Seven people with very different lives imagine their last day on earth.


Hope by Jem Street (September 2008)

The party wants Joe Chandler to run for Congress, but in one night in a hotel by the Tennessee River, he must come to terms with an imperfect past and an imperfect future.


Joe:  How good does a man have to be to be a politician?

Hubbard:  He doesn't have to be perfect, Joe, just real quiet about being imperfect. People don't need to know you're like everyone else.  


Love and Money by Paulo Stoltezza (March 2009)

In Italy, you can't go to jail if you have AIDS. And this is how the bank robbing gang started. Paulo Stoltezza's 's farce takes on all things religious, political, sexual and fashionable.
