COME BACK UP
By Sarah M. Duncan
Directed by Jillian Robertson
A WORLD PREMIERE
Letta has no interest in looking back at the painful years behind her, but a surprise visit from her ex-partner Clara brings a lot more than the past when she implicates Letta’s son Buddy in a local crime. A story of race, family, crime, disability, injustice, redemption, and love in a broken America.
"Come Back Up, by Sarah M. Duncan, has a remarkably true soul. Stripped of all its accoutrements, the play, at the Gym at Judson, is an affecting study of the love between a mother and a son."

WINNER OF PROJECT
Two 16-year-olds meet at an artsy pre-college program, where they flirt, fight, but are ultimately unable to handle the love they stumble into. Sixteen years later, they are face-to-face again, and innocent nostalgia is turning into something far more difficult. Funny and heartbreaking, lighthouse is a play about the past never past.
"lighthouse is a truly intimate experience with the souls of the characters laid bare only a few feet before you."
