OFF TRACK by James Comtois

So what do you do when your last one-night stand has been found murdered? You venture out to a terrifying part of town amidst a transit strike to find the killer. Or wind up getting stranded and beaten to death in the process, whichever comes first.

ANOTHER KIND OF LOVE by Crystal Skillman
Directed by Kimberly Faith Hickman
Rock legend Kit Singer abandons her tour, returning to her family home for a concert celebrating the anniversary of her mother’s suicide. On the night before they are to play together once more, Kit reunites with her former band members, her sisters that she hasn’t seen in ten years. But when Max , Kit’s 15 year old wild child niece, unleashes her passionate desire to play with them – and Kit most of all- the family is forced to face the painful truths that created their songs, their lives, and their very selves.
All readings are at ART/NY, 520 Eighth Avenue, 3rd floor (Bruce Mitchell Room). All readings are free, but a $5 donation is suggested.
