Between Two Caves

by Brendan Bourque-Sheil

Directed by Benito Vasquez

 

With: Anna Maria Morris and Camron Alexander

 

A comedy about modern conspiracy theory culture.  Alex is the content creator and host of a successful self-produced podcast, and she is currently adjusting from being a poor nobody to being someone with a little bit of money, celebrity, and influence. Despite her growing success, ratings are still precarious. Parker, a friend of Alex, would like to be some kind of high-profile celebrity investigative journalist, maybe the next Julian Assange, but as of right now, he's living with his mom.  At this very moment of podcast uncertainty, Parker visits with a story he feels will send him and her show into the national spotlight.  His controversial proposal puts Alex in an uncomfortable dilemma. Does she satisfy her need for edgy content or pull back to save her slipping audience base?

The Visit 

By Esme Wu

Directed by Sophia Watt

 

With: Alan Brincks and Faith Fossett

 

An intense drama about family treasures.  It’s been six months since Sharona died.  Her husband Scott is at home waiting for the visit of Suze, Ro’s sister, who is coming to collect some of her sister’s belongings.  The two have personalities and points of view at polar opposites, and are prone to clashing on ideas.  When a valuable necklace passed down from their grandmother is missing from her sister’s possessions, tempers flare, and through the conflict the importance of the true jewels of the family are uncovered.

WITHIN THESE WALLS is a collection of new works commissioned by The Landing Theatre Company from local playwrights Brendan Bourque-Sheil and Esme Wu for a site-specific micro theatre project set in a specific house in the Heights. These performances are presented for audiences of only 18 people at a time in a working BnB. WITHIN THESE WALLS is an intimate, up-close, immersive theatre experience where the audience sits in the house that the stories happen in, and watch the drama unfold around them. There will be performances 7 days a week (except for Halloween night) in rotation throughout the run.
