Ching Chong Chinaman by Lauren Yee
sound The Wongs are American as apple pie. Desdemona dreams of Princeton but could use some help with her calculus. Her brother Upton wants to be a World of Warcraft champion but needs more free time to train. Upton solves both their problems by bringing an indentured servant home one day, but they soon discover that "Ching Chong" has American dreams of his own!

"The playwright, Lauren Yee, gleefully highlights the assimilated life of the Wongs, who defy the stereotype of the hard-driving Chinese-American family. It's clever, and her insights are astute. "
The New York Times
Big, Scary Animals by Matt Lyle
sound An older white couple from the country moves to the city to be closer to their granddaughter and unknowingly settles in the gay neighborhood. What begins as polite dinner conversation with their gay, multi-ethnic neighbors careens out of control. A hilarious collision of race, sex, guns, and sports, Big, Scary Animals examines shifting generational beliefs and just how hard it is to raise a child regardless of who you are and where you live.

"One of the densest string of laugh-out-loud comedies you'll ever see . . . . this smart, 85-minute comedy created a sense of community that is, at its heart, the goal of all theater."
