A contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a diversion created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But when France’s love affair with the royals sours and revolution brews, the political suddenly becomes very personal. Darkly funny and strikingly modern, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

Speech & Debate

Speech & Debate is a dark comedy that the New York Times called, “bristling with vitality, wicked humor, terrific dialogue and a direct pipeline into the zeitgeist of contemporary youth.” It follows the story of three misfit high school students in Salem, Oregon as they work together to try and expose a sex scandal within their school. By joining together to be the only members of the Speech & Debate club, the students are brought closer together in their shared activism and art, pushing through their pain to grow as people and create a performance that is honest, awkward, and important.
