Jane and Belle are best friends. Their husbands are best friends. Someday, their children will be best friends. And of course, they don’t have any secrets from each other. What could possibly go wrong? A play about what happens when the only plan you’ve ever made starts to unravel.

 

How to Not Save the World with Mr. Bezos by Maggie Kearnan
Directed by Taylor Stark
A throne of red Solo cups, a pile of teeth, the ghost of Pete Seeger, and a little something for dinner. It’s 2030, and it’s illegal to be a billionaire. Jeffrey Bezos has agreed to give an interview in exchange for information on the federal case against him. But there’s something off about journalist Cherry Beaumont, a crowd is forming outside, and the onstage Fact Checker has a few important clarifications to make. In this near-future fairy tale, the fall of capitalism is about to get very messy.

 

A Fig Tree, and a Phoenix, and a Desire to be Reborn by Isabelle Sanatdar Stevens
When 12 year olds Farah and Parsa meet under a fig tree, they have an instant connection. Growing up in Iran can feel unpredictable and chaotic—but when Farah and Parsa are together, they make an enchanted universe with its own rules. They can talk to the stars, love each other forever, and fix whatever’s broken. But how long can two kids stay together under a tree before they’re forced to re-enter the decidedly un-magical world they did not make?

 

The Recursion of a Moth by Brandon Zang
Icarus and Mikey time travel. Icarus and Mikey fall out of love. Icarus and Mikey meet each other for the first time on a park bench. Somewhere else, sometime else, Crystal puts a raw chicken in the oven. The rules are: you can travel to any timeline as long as you don’t change anything. But of course, there’s always someone who thinks the rules don’t apply to them.
