What do dogs do when their masters leave? Put on a French farce! Quick entrances, mistaken identities, and love triangles collide with panting, sniffing, and lots of leg humping in this unusual and saucy comedy!

She thought their love was true, but it was fan-fiction.

A trippy comedic ride featuring sex, death, and Stephen King.
SEX, DEATH, and STEPHEN KING! "Fitzpatrick bops along in a rapid-fire whirl of pop culture references, personal revelations, goofy side-trips into B-movie Adventureland, and musings on mortality.

9:30pm: Succession

Cunningly Sensual, A One Woman Retrospective Odyssey.
Succession is rich in texture, intertwining extreme explorations of human behavior while exhibiting raw power mixed with delicate human vulnerability. Ms. Green has thread together segments from her body of solo works to create a life cycle journey. From channeling fluid movements of a fetus in the amniotic sac, to interim life stages, and the immediacy of. Emotions, the cyclical journey continues with a metaphor for transformation, aging, and the disruption of order amidst an installation of hundreds of flowers. Succession concludes in a rite of passion, with a spiritual burial of the past followed by a symbolic rebirth in the planting of oneself. This powerful solo work, executed through cunning sensuality, relies on exposing aspects of the archetypal female, all sourced from the deep recesses of the character's psyche.
