“environmentally... completely works, thanks to andrew boyce's sturdy playground set and donahue's inventive direction... so lively”                               -christopher arnott, new haven advocate


recess (world premiere)

summer cabaret / garden, july 30 - august 9, 2008

love story and social satire about a high-powered corporation where mandatory recess has been implemented in the hopes of increasing productivity.  environmentally staged, both inside and outside, with live music, a fully equipped playground, and lots of bubbles.
