Kaspar

This dance/theater piece, scripted by Marta Garcia and Nancy Gomez and directed by Garcia, is adapted from Donna Williams's autobiography about her experiences as an autistic adolescent and from Peter Handke's dramatization of the story of Kaspar Hauser, who spent his youth imprisoned in a small cell until he escaped at age 16.

The Love Talker

Deborah Pryor's drama about an adolescent's loss of innocence is directed by Michael Miller.

What Is This Everything?

Kelsey Hartman directs a play by Patricia Scanlon about "two archetypal characters who meet in a coffee shop."
