Reno, NV.  This is Paula Vogel's daringly comic and heart-stirring theatrical eulogy to the brother she lost to AIDS. Winner of the Obie award, the author went on to win a Pulitzer Prize for her Play, How I Learned To Drive, which was coincidentally directed by Neace at Brüka in 2012. The play begins as Anna is diagnosed with terminal "Acquired Toilet Disease". A first grade teacher from Baltimore, she embarks on a madcap trip through France, Germany, Holland and Austria with her beloved brother. She aims to taste all of life’s sensual pleasures; he wants her to undergo a whacky alternative medical cure in Austria. Writing this award winning play, Vogel employs all her brilliant creative tools---comedy, drama, music, her love of movies, art and literature---to come to terms with a profound personal tragedy.  Featuring Bradford Kai'ai'ai, Mary Bennett and Bryce Alexander Kiel.

Reno, NV.  The Christmas season brings us Ham for the Holidays directed by Joe Atack and written by Shad Willingham.  Ham For The Holidays is a hilarious farce set in a fictional town in Georgia, Hamlin. It is Christmas Eve 1939 and the local radio station WHAM (pronounced W-HAM) has a special one-off performance planned for Christmas. WHAM has gathered it’s radio actors together and with the Orson Welles on his way to the station to join the cast for the performance there is great excitement all-round. Unfortunately Georgia has been hit with a freak snowstorm and neither Orson Welles, nor the script for the performance, arrive. “Ham for the Holidays” is a warm-hearted homage to traditional farce with its broad character sketches and pratfalls, and just the lightest tip of the hat to the screwball comedies of the 1930s.
