we broke up.

How do you process grief in a digital world? Everyone’s favorite vlogging couple just broke up, and they’re here – streaming live – to tell you all about it. In a climate of social distancing, this play explores the world of social-media celebrities, and challenges our addictive consumption of the private lives of strangers, revealing that the distance between genuine vulnerability and performative pain is far greater than the inches between one’s face and their computer screen.

Whiskey Flicks Live

An unscripted, booze-infused, deep dive into film. Dan presents Mike with a unique series of themed movie clips. Mike uses them as a launching point for impromptu film crit, personal history, and social commentary...with whiskey. Mike doesn’t know what Dan’s going to show him, Dan doesn’t know what Mike’s going to say, and the audience is along for the ride. There may even be singing. There’ll definitely be drinking. Hopefully you’ll remember why you love the movies, too. BYOB!
