    Wild Thing
    Written by Anna Smith and directed by Josh Coleman

    Wild Thing is a heartwarming tale about a married couple reminiscing how they have lost their spark, only to find the romance is not as dead as they thought.

    Stealing the Packard
    Written by Peter Shelburne and directed by Dorothy Mallam

    Martin's garage used to house his 1952 Packard Clipper, but the Packard has been missing since his death. Now his widow, Ruth, takes comfort in having her meals where the Packard once stood as she wrestles with her grief. Her children complain, her neighbor comforts, her fifteen- year old grandson, Jasper, struggles with his own sense of loss as everyone tries to discover who stole the Packard. Filled with poignancy and humor, Peter Shelburne's play puts us in touch with our struggle to hang on to the old and our need to find new paths when confronted with grief and change.
