Unity has carved out her perfect domestic life: husband, daughter, suspicious age-defying looks. But after disarming a squad of CIA agents at the grocery store, Unity is forced to tell her daughter the truth about her last and longest job—as Uncle Sam's very first army of one. It's a politically incorrect tour of America's military history, complete with robots, kung fu, and big f**king guns.Event Details

Set in New York in 1927, among members of what W.E.B. DuBois called "The Talented Tenth," ColorLines examines the choices made by characters whose lives are defined by skin color who must determine what "Race" they belong to and where to call home. This play will challenge the audience to take its preconceived notions of Race and place and apply it to their own multi-cultural histories.Event Details
Why should we, as theater artists, worry about being family-friendly? What does an "all-ages" show mean, exactly? Can family theater be challenging and gripping? We'll mull over what makes children's theater in the US and across the world, and we'll create some inappropriate and appropriate scenes to discuss.Event Details
