The head of a university in a small town, Dean Wreen's going through a rough patch in life. Midlife's coming toward her at top speed, her school is in dire financial trouble (so she wants to close the school's natural history museum), her ex has returned to live with her (much to the chagrin of her much younger current girlfriend) and she's about to have some other giant, prehistoric problems to contend with in the academic sex comedy Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England. Hailed by The New York Times as "smart, clever ... lively and literate," Mammoths was written by award-winning playwright Madeleine George (The Zero Hour, Precious Little). Learn More

Tim wasn't supposed to be a comedian. A biologist by training, he graduated magna cum laude from UC San Diego with honors in biology. He went on to complete his PhD at UC Davis. He spent years developing simulation and analytical models of population dynamics before he discovered that this bored him to tears. When he tried comedy for the first time the tears stopped. Tim Lee has performed for clubs, colleges and companies across the USA. He draws heavily on his science background to twist abstract theory into thought provoking comedy.
Tim's films have screened at film festivals across the country and been broadcast internationally. He is one of the Top 100 most subscribed comedians on Youtube. He's done a commercial for the NHL starring opposite Jonathan Cheechoo and was the Spare the Air Guy pictured in TV commercials, and on posters, trains and buses.
