Wednesday Nov 14th at 7pm
PAINT by Zack Calhoon, directed by Jordana Williams
Beginnings and endings. Last dates and first dates. We enter relationships with the best of intentions and refuse to abandon them when all is lost.

Saturday Nov 17th at 3pm
THE GNOME by Isaac Rathbone, directed by Linda S. Nelson
An Upstate New York man uncovers a magical lawn gnome after an early spring thaw. It grants him his wishes, but each come at a cost. A tale of greed, lust, betrayal, snow and Wal-Mart.

LOOKING FOR THE QUESTIONS NOT THE ANSWERS by Lavinia Roberts, directed by Sarah Norris
A librarian, disillusioned by the lack of interesting reference questions, posts a flyer on the NYC subway seeking questions. The response she gets will surprise you.
