18th & Union
February 21st--March 14th
Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984 is the story of Winston Smith, an insignificant party member in the giant machine state of Oceania. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal "assistance" of four Party Members who reenact scenes from his diary, Winston is forced to confess his Thoughtcrimes before an unseen inquisitor.
One Horse Town
April 3rd--May 2nd
After the apocalypse, a trio of queer ranchers are protecting the last horse on earth from a group of starving runaways, who are trying their best not to become cannibals. All of them, ranchers and runaways alike, struggle to remember what makes them human in a world urging them to forget their compassion and their sanity. A dystopian drama by Minna Lee (The Devil and Sarah Blackwater, Rovers!), directed by Grace Carmack (Silhouette, Puny Humans) helm an ensemble in a story about survival and transformation.
