Did You Find What You Were Looking For?, by Tom Booker. Tom Booker has been working in theater for over thirty years; he has the paltry bank account and retirement fund to prove it! Six months ago, in order to make a little extra cash, interact with people during the day, and stop wasting so much time reading self-help books, Tom became a cashier at Home Depot. During that time he has learned a lot about life, people, and himself. Join Tom Booker while he tells of his hilarious adventures while "Living The Orange Life," where he has become a part-time handyman, part-time therapist, part-time philosopher, and full-time guy just trying to get by!

It represents the first long form(ish) collaboration of Austin artists and longtime chuckleheads Mike D’Alonzo and Jeremy Sweetlamb.

Please Stay, by Gloria C. Adams, Max Perry, and Teresa Johnson. Please Stay. Normal culture dictates that even on your worst day, when your brain has fallen out and you’re at the end of your hope, when someone asks, “How are you?” you must say, “Fine.” But through honesty, authenticity, and connection, three poets survive themselves by talking it out—if you can say it, you can survive it. We’re glad you’re here; Please Stay. Content Warning: this show discusses experiences of self-harm, suicidal ideation, and the struggle for survival. Directed by Gloria C. Adams, produced by Teresa Johnson.
