Macrae is rotting from the inside out. He knows it. Nothing can stop it. No one, except maybe Eve. Two streamers, one an incel, one a feminist. Deep dive into the world of toxic masculinity, misogyny, and the hold of far-right influencers on the minds of young men. Let the violence rot until it allows healing once again.

Sadec 1965: A Love Story

école secondaire publique De La Salle public high school

How can we find true, sustained love when we failed to receive it? This is the question Sadec 1965 attempts to answer. After finding out that her estranged father has cancer, Flora goes on a 6-week solo motorcycle trip through Vietnam, her father’s homeland, to make sense of her difficult relationship with him. Her search for answers will take her on an incredible journey through time and space, allowing her memories to take on a new meaning.

Shelley and Lovelace Never Met

Mary Shelley invented science fiction. Ada Lovelace invented computer science. They never met. Isn’t that odd?

Plagued by debts, Victorian society, and Lord Byron, they lived parallel lives that never quite touched. In a silent churchyard they share secrets, scandals, and a sneaking horror that their legacies might not outlive them.

Smut Slam

The Remembering


The discovery of a tooth in a tomato garden begins a chilling spiral into this trans, autistic reimagining of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This new work of contemporary, queer horror by acclaimed spoken word artist, Billie Nell, melds Gothic fiction, theatre, and poetry in an excavation of late autism diagnosis and interrogation of what one finds when you hold a shovel to your own stomach…

The Sketch Book Comedy Show

Sketches created by teens, including original concepts, and a super fast rendition of the Bard’s Romeo and Juliet (in the teen’s own words). Think of this as an homage to “You Can’t Do That on Television” and a tad on the Pythonesque realm by a bunch of teens, with lemons.

The Stakeout


Fresh off their NYC Off-Broadway run, The Stakeout is a comedy/drama about two men on a stakeout of two men on a stakeout of them. Wild, disorienting, funny, & heartfelt. A head trip about fathers, sons, and one’s sense of self. Dramatically ambitious and disorienting in the best possible way…
