"a comedy about a tragedy" by Laura Jacqmin
September 13 - October 7, 2018
Thursdays-Sundays at Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth, 704 Airport Blvd., Ann Arbor, MI 48108 (map)

Milvotchkee, Visconsin is the surreal and eye-opening story of Molly, a woman living with a hole in her head. Molly’s lifetime of memories are falling right out of her head, and fast. Her surroundings become unfamiliar and distorted as she comes to grips with the challenges of her disease. Working with healthcare professionals she doesn’t always understand and a family that doesn’t always understand her, can she find a way to carry on with dignity and peace?

The Ding Dongs or What is the penalty in Portugal?

by Brenda Withers
March 28 - April 14, 2019.
Thursdays-Sundays at trustArt Studios

When Joe and Natalie, a sweet-faced couple, show up on a suburban doorstep, the tight-lipped homeowner, Redelmo, finds their story suspicious: the house, they claim, was Joe’s childhood home and they’ve driven all this way in hopes of getting a quick peek around. As a cat-and-mouse game steadily unfolds between a bewildered homeowner and two uninvited visitors, the mood of unease escalates into something like terror.
