Play Name: Amazons and Their Men
Description: In 1939 Berlin, the Frau shoots an epic movie: Amazons and Their Men was inspired by the life and work of Leni Riefenstahl (Hitler's cinematographer). The Frau used to direct beautiful films for a fascist government. Now she's trying to make a film that's simply beautiful. The Frau casts herself in the lead role of the Amazon queen Penthesilea, who falls in love with Achilles on the battlefield of the Trojan War. She recruits a man from the Jewish ghetto to play her Achilles. The movie's Achilles, however, is falling for the young man who keeps bringing the Frau telegrams from her friends in the Fascist government, on the verge of starting a war. And the Frau's sister, a recurring extra in her films whose specialty is dying on camera, is trying to get her to wake up to the ominous goings-on in the world.

Play Name: An Apology for the Course and Outcome of Certain Events Delivered by Dr. John Faustus on this His Final Evening
Description: Faustus, a skittish, self-aggrandizing schmuck facing his final hour on earth delivers an extravagant, hilarious, and ultimately unnerving monologue about the sublime meaninglessness of nearly all human endeavors. A lean, tragicomic version of the Faust story, AN APOLOGY... presents Doctor Faustus in the last hour of his final night on earth - irritated, whining, drunk, and repentant of nothing save his failure to keep a proper diary. Over the course of the evening, he rails against his silent servant Mephistopheles and tells the fantastic tale of his life - a life filled with wonders, as well as an immeasurably vast evil.
