The 2014 Unplugged Season:

By Jennifer Hoppe-House
Directed By Jeremy Cohen
(Producing Artistic Director of The Playwright’s Center in Minneapolis, MN.)
A family drama with bite
After ten years clean and sober, Molly Drexler tumbles off “the wagon” and crashes her Prius through the side of her house. As the events of Molly’s blackout (and the ghosts that chase her) emerge, her family tries to cope with her wreckage, but end up running headlong into their own.

March 30 at 7pm
By Bob Morris
Directed By Gordon Greenberg
(Asolo Rep’s Working, A Musical and Barnum, both 2008
and Yentl, 2012)

True tales of double dating with your dad
What would you do if your 75 year old father dragged you into his hell-bent hunt for new love? New York Times style writer Bob Morris, a chronically single son, shows us how it happened in this warm, witty, and wacky comedy about a year of dating dangerously.

April 6 at 7pm
GODDESS OF MERCY                   
By Jenny Connell Davis
Directed by Mark Rucker
(Associate Artistic Director at A.C.T. in San Francisco, and director of Asolo Rep’s The Constant Wife, 2008; Managing Maxine, 2010; and Once in a Lifetime, 2012)

When the personal and political collide
Kate and Mike struggle to hold it together as they try to juggle their relationship and his transcontinental commute. When Mike’s sister Brianna, just back from the Peace Corps and crashing on their couch, finds out Mike’s oil company is sending him to hush up trouble in the same part of Asia she just left, their opposing views provoke an international incident.

April 13 at 7pm
By David Bar Katz
Directed by Jeff Calhoun
(Asolo Rep’s Bonnie & Clyde, 2010; Noah Racey’s Pulse, 2013)

A quest to know and voice the truth
Set immediately after the repeal of Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell, and delving into the mysterious death of a soldier who had recently come out, Ask/Tell explores the hypocrisies – both spoken and unspoken – that accompany intense intimacy between men in a war zone.
