This years series will be held at Jimmy's No. 43, 43 E. 7th St. in the East Village. They're kind folks who have let us crash for cheap so the admission price will be to buy a drink from them. We'd love to have you stop by!

What \ Washed Ashore / Astray by Benjamin Benne; directed by Elena Araoz

Twin sisters, Antonia and Amelia, reunite in their family's beach cottage and a strange collection of things have been washing ashore: metal hooks, glass bottles, whale carcasses, and memories that had been forgotten. With the surrounding environment corroding from the rising temperature, rising tides, and foul smells rising from the waves, a visit from Amelia's son, Jamie, makes it clear that the world as they knew it has irreversibly changed. What \ Washed Ashore / Astray is a sensory play about deterioration.

Secretly hoards objects she find buried in the dirt, and hides them from her eco-engineering boyfriend, Clark. At the site of pre-apocalypse ruins, two men find Lewis digging away in the desert, and they just won't stop asking her for directions and calling her "Sacajawea." Whatever that means.
