Static, a far-off voice; it is a long distance call—Jae, reaching you from the other end of the universe. Jae has a series of intergalactic transmissions to share, from different pockets of the galaxy: the experiences of lives and cultures in a time of isolation. And Jae has a challenge for you: can you make a beacon to bring us all back together? We Can’t Wait is a pre-recorded phone adventure for one audience member. You’ll choose the order in which you experience the story, while following guidelines to craft a unique artifact all your own. Perfect for teens and pre-teens, fans of fantasy and sci-fi, crafty types, and folks looking to flex their creativity at home.

Georgiana Recovered in Time

First mailing sent on April 29, 2021

By Natalia de la Torre and Meghan Winch
A world premiere, commissioned by Tiny Dynamite

Georgiana Darcy was refined and polite – or tried to be, anyway. A thwarted elopement threatened to tame her wild heart, but all the good breeding in the world can only go so far. Join us for a handcrafted story of love, distance, and what it means to bridge the two – all set in the world of Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice. Over the course of 10 mailings, you’ll be immersed in two love stories, get a peek into what comes after the novel for your favorite characters, and receive handcrafted treasures – including some for you to make yourself!

An interactive Zoom play

Social Distances

May 12 – May 16, 2021

By Ian August
Directed by Kathryn MacMillan
Featuring Jessica Bedford, Danielle Leneé, and Charlotte Northeast
A world premiere, commissioned by Tiny Dynamite
Streaming live via Zoom

Executive Honorary Producer Carol Beam
Honorary Producer Rebecca Bradbeer

A comedy about trust, friendships, and the perils of planning a wedding shower. Created for this moment, Social Distances puts you (and the other audience members) onscreen in a Zoom happy hour alongside Elaine, Jana, and Sally, three friends in their 40s trying to navigate the challenges of their online and in-person relationships. The play splits up the audience into smaller groups for private confessionals from each character, and with 27 possible paths through the story, no two audience experiences will be exactly the same!

The Word on the Street:

The plays remain brilliantly quirky gems…A Play, A Pie, and A Pint® proves that theater needn’t be a full-evening formal occasion. Drop in for a quick one, you won’t be sorry.
