After a recent performance at Joe's Pub in New York City, last year's queer holiday hit We Three Lizas is back with a revamped book and expanded score. Box maker Conrad Ticklebottom's life has hit a stumbling block. At one time, his purple box sparked an entire movement in art and design, but now he's been forgotten and teetering on ruin. Just in the nick of time, the holidays bring three magical figures to his door -- a trio of Liza Minnellis -- to escort him on a fabulous journey through what-was, what-could-be and what-the-f*?!, redeeming his lost promise and reinventing a brand-new Conrad Ticklebottom.

Caffeine Theatre at Stage 773 presents
a play by Caridad Svich
Directed by Joanie Schultz
Spinning madly off of the Greek myth of Medea, Wreckage begins when two boys wash up on shore, not knowing who or where they are, only that they have no choice but to keep moving in a strange world that may or may not be the afterlife. As they wander through this new landscape they soon learn the value of their youth and beauty, as well as the inevitability of pain and loss. Gender roles and parental roles alike lose their accepted meanings, and we begin to understand how fragile identity really is.
Cast: Dana Black, Tim Martin, Ian Daniel McLaren, Sean Thomas, Jeremy van Meter
