Sara Farrington


Three completely powerless people hiding in a cave during the Battle of VIcksburg, 1863: Jane, a middle class Southern woman, her husband's slave, George, and Jane's teenaged daughter. As the war rages only inches away from them, Jane and George create their own version of society in the claustrophobic cave, with its own set of rules, boundaries, language and physicality.


Inspired by Kate Chopin's 1899 novel The Awakening, this is a funny and moving play about a woman figuring it out far too late.


Miles and Milo are the two greatest, most multi-talented, visionary artists in the entire world; that's why they don't get any grant money from The Sunshine Foundation for the Arts--- they're convinced the Foundation is holding them down to keep the world mediocre. But when Miles and Milo do get a Sunshine Foundation grant, they squander it all and become NPR-listening drones.
