A fantastical journey to discover the power we hold within

On a visit to the Philippines to spread their father's ashes, a brother and sister befriend a local girl who is revealed to be an Aswang, a supernatural creature from Filipino folklore. Together they unlock the truth about their father, and the truth about themselves.

A haunting and empowering piece.

When all the layers of a story support one another like this, there's some first-rate playwriting going on.

An epic exploration of humanity’s longing for freedom and justice

A theatrical thrill ride through 250 years of history. From the American Revolution, to the struggle for civil rights, to the fight against Communism, to the present War on Terror, Ameryka weaves together unexpected events and characters connecting Poland and the United States. Critical Mass Performance Group's kaleidoscopic style of found text, heightened physicality, original music, and exuberant spectacle culminates in an exhilarating theatrical journey of boundless hope.

A remarkable journey.

Anthony Byrnes, KCRW

Flat-out brilliant. The passion and commitment of all concerned infuses every minute of it.

Die, Mommie, Die!

May 10–20, 2018

A Greek tragedy on acid with a gay Hollywood twist!

Trapped in a hateful marriage with sleazy film producer Sol and desperate to find happiness with her gorgeous young lover Tony, aging Hollywood star Angela Arden (Drew Droege) murders her husband. But when her children discover what she's done, they decide to take revenge!

A clever, kitsch, psychedelic drag-fest!
Charles Busch's Die, Mommie, Die! is equal parts comic melodrama, Greek tragedy and Hollywood kitsch—and all campy noir classic in the vein of 1960s gothic horror films.
