The Drunken City by Adam Bock: Off on the bar crawl to end all crawls, three twenty-something brides-to-be find their lives going topsy-turvy when one of them begins to question her future after a chance encounter with a recently jilted handsome stranger. The Drunken City is a wildly theatrical take on the mystique of marriage and the ever-shifting nature of love and identity in a city that never sleeps.

I Want to Destroy You by Rob Handel: Harold became a famous artist by having a friend shoot him in the arm in a gallery. Today, Harold has a house, a child, and a tenure-track teaching job. Who is he to tell a student not to bring a gun to class? Inspired by the provocative career of conceptual artist Chris Burden, I Want to Destroy You asks troubling questions about ethics, education, class, meaning, violence, middle age, and roofing.

Love and Information by Caryl Churchill: Someone sneezes. Someone can't get a signal. Someone won't answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone's not ready to talk. Someone is her brother's mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone's never felt like this before.

In this fast moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know.
