“Pushing the boundaries of classic drama and breaking new ground with daring multidisciplinary productions.” 
-Lucia Mauro, Curtain Call 

Feverdream Cocktail
Feverdream Cocktail comes in three tasty movements. Movement one, An Information Theory, concerns the travails of a woman trying to keep warm by burning books, who is continuously interrupted by a pair of brain surgery refugees and a man with a missing shoe. Movement two, Scherzo, is a dance movement. Movement three, Burns Itself Out, deals with a territorial struggle between rival ciggarette hunters, each with their own wrtier-slave, all trying to keep a singer-paymaster well-stocked with lyrics.
