Pastoral Paranoia
In America where farm life has collapsed and drugs have filled the void, Dickie McDonald’s rural drug empire is threatened when his older brother is forced out of a likewise collapsing California and returns home to vie for power in the family. Soon all except the dotty mother and father are aligned against Dickie, but Dickie who may seem somewhat “slow” is no fool. Conflict ensues.

Janice & Shelley & Jo
by Lee Brady
directed by Andrea Gordon

featuring Sally Dana, Shirley Nielsen Hall
and Bridget O’Keefe

Sisters Janice and Shelley meet for the first time ever and get a fresh look at their mother, Jo. To Janice, Jo was a high-spirited slut who abandoned her, while Shelley only knows her mother as a pious member of a religious commune in Absolute Truth, Colorado. As the two women unlock the mystery of their past and uncover the bloody violence that changed all their lives, Jo and her own mother show up and the emotional explosions come thick and fast.
