Hour Glass by David-Matthew Barnes

Hayden and Persephone Caulwell have been married for twenty-two years. Constantly referred to as “the perfect couple,” they have found themselves hiding the discord in their marriage from their family and friends. After a dinner party, they engage in a volatile confrontation and years of affairs, secrets, and emotions begin to surface. Realizing their marriage has ended, husband and wife lash out at each other until the dining room – and their lives – are left in shards. This one-act play was inspired equally by the short story ‘Bliss’ by Katherine Mansfield and the Greek myth of Persephone.

Witch of the Water by Kyle Wieczorek

Far beneath the crashing ocean tide lies a mystical kingdom, hidden from the world above. It’s a magical place, full of wonder and enchantment, where mythological creatures dwell, and mermaids roam freely.
Over the centuries, there have been countless renditions and retellings of the class fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, the tale of a young mermaid princess who strikes a bargain with a conniving sea hag in exchange for the opportunity to be with her one true love.
This story, on the other hand, takes a darker twist, diving into the previously unknown origins of the mysterious sorceress, once Sequana, a headstrong, knowledge-seeking mermaid and devoted daughter of a powerful sea king. Wounded by a heartbreaking betrayal, Sequana finds herself struggling between good and evil, and is faced with a choice that could jeopardize herself and everyone she loves.

It’s only once she is ripped away from this love that Avery finds herself at The Farm, facing truths she never expected and the possibility that she could be the spark her people need to reignite.
