Now Playing In Theatre Asylum
35 years ago, Cathy (FELICITY HUFFMAN) killed two police officers after inciting an act of anarchy. Now, she comes face to face with her parole officer, Ann (REBECCA PIDGEON), for the last time. This 70 minute, thought-provoking play comes to a head as Ann seeks a sign of true rehabilitation or at the very least regret, while Cathy bargains to be set free.

Working for the Mouse
Written and performed by Trevor Allen
Directed by Nancy Carlin
What really goes on at the Happiest Place on Earth? Trevor Allen once played Pluto and the Mad Hatter at Disneyland. He returns with tales of quirky co-workers, militant managers, and backstage debauchery in this unique coming-of-age tale. Working for the Mouse blows pixie dust in your eyes while offering a hilarious glimpse behind the ears of the Magic Kingdom. Voted Best of the SF Fringe Festival, it’s garnered sold-out houses and critical acclaim in San Francisco and Berkeley and around the Bay Area without once getting a cease-and-desist order from Disney. Be careful what you wish upon a star for… it just might come true.
Trevor Allen is an award winning Bay Area playwright. Productions include: Lolita Roadtrip (San Jose Stage Company).The Creature (Black Box Theatre Company, BACC award) Tenders in the Fog (San Jose Stage Company, Dean Goodman Award, Original Script), Workin read more

For this, Mary was sentenced to death and the giant railroad cranes in the Blue Ridge mountain rail hub of Erwin were to be the engines of her demise. MAN’S DOMINION provides voice to ten (10) witnesses and participants to that event, including both victims – Red Eldridge and Mary, the el read more
