    Being alone can be difficult; from sitting alone at lunch, to being left home alone. Flying solo can be either frightening or empowering. In this one-week playwriting and drama intensive we will explore how we can better approach the daunting, yet freeing experience of being solo. The class will culminate in a collaboratively written student play, which we will workshop and share with friends and family.

    Directed by Steven Sterne

    When aging actor and convicted embezzler Victor Duke is released from prison, he is determined to get revenge on the Broadway producer whose testimony landed him behind bars. To do so, he calls upon friends from both his criminal and theatrical past and plans a daring heist that will take place onstage before an unsuspecting audience. But are all of the gang members going to play their parts – or is one of them planning to steal the stage and pull a double-cross? This new play by Jennifer Dice is a crime caper for those who enjoy action, humor and backstage intrigue.
