PERISHABLE, KEEP REFRIGERATED
WORLD PREMIERE

Written by Max Tachis
Directed by Kathleen Normington

RTE Rating: 13+
(What does this mean?)

Join us next fall for the very first play ever created by a member of the Renegade Ensemble. From the mind of our very own Max Tachis comes this brilliant new comedy about love, babies, and time portals. Dana & Samuel are a young, married couple who are having trouble starting a family. After a heated argument where Dana has stormed off leaving Samuel alone in the kitchen, Samuel is surprised when an Austrian couple falls out of his refrigerator. It turns out the refrigerator has become a time portal to Austria in the late 1800s. This event gets reported to the government that comes to investigate the phenomena. The President, whose poll numbers are falling, decides to use the event to boost his popularity even though it may destroy our own timeline. Join us for this one of a kind experience!

THE NORWEGIANS
WEST COAST PREMIERE
Written by Colin Denby Swanson
Directed by Tunuviel Luv

RTE Rating: 13+
(What does this mean?)

"C. Denby Swanson's extremely odd and delightful comedy, is something of a guilty pleasure. " - The New York Times

"An oddly entertaining dark comedy by C. Denby Swanson that attempts to combine the patter of a mob comedy with dour but nice Scandinavians…In a culture that so strongly defines as 'American,' there is surprising humorous mileage in the regional nuance being used in much the same way as astrology" - NYTheatre.com

A strong, bitter comedy about women scorned in Minnesota and the really, really nice gangsters—Norwegian hit men—they hire to whack their ex-boyfriends. Olive is a transplant from Texas and Betty is a transplant from Kentucky, but neither of them was prepared for the Norwegian men they would fall in love with there: the practical, warm, thoughtful, destructive, evil, jilting kind. If you're a hit man in Minnesota, 83% of your clients want to take out their ex (oofda!). Betty has referred Olive to Gus and Tor, a partnership in the whacking business. What Tor doesn't know is that Gus has been sleeping with the clients. What Olive doesn't know is that Gus is Betty's own ex, and she has already put out a hit on him with a Swiss firm. Can Betty call off the job in time to let Gus do his? Should she?

THE NORTH PLAN
Bay Area PREMIERE
Written by Jason Wells
Directed by Ana-Catrina Buchser

RTE Rating: 13+
(What does this mean?)

"Despite such serious thematic concerns as the legitimacy of political authority, the importance of dissent and the uses of torture, The North Plan is a threat to public order because it's a laugh riot... Building a headlong momentum until its sudden conclusion - which on opening night brought the crowd to a hooting, hollering standing ovation." - The Oregonian

"Wells is a highly entertaining writer with a keen sense of how to fire up a pressure cooker on a stage and keep an audience feeling jumpy ... Fun, smart, involving and just disturbing enough for a Saturday night on the town." - The Chicago Tribune

After a ruthless faction seizes power in Washington, Carlton Berg, a bureaucrat for the State Department, runs off with the new regime's top secret enemies list. Unfortunately for Carlton, the chase has come to an end in a police station in the Ozarks town of Lodus. With a pair of DHS agents on the way, Carlton's last hope is in the people around him: an unsympathetic police chief, an ambivalent administrative assistant, and fellow prisoner Tanya Shepke, a motor-mouthed recidivist who's turned herself in for drunk driving and thinks Skynyrd should be on the new money.

The revolution starts now.
