In 1916, the generally good people of Erwin, Tennessee lynched an elephant. Hot on the heels of sold-out runs at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and The Encore Producers' Awards series, Man's Dominion uses this decidedly disturbing (and completely true) event to examine themes that include animal cruelty, race relations and religious intolerance. An incident that's lost none of its resonance in the ensuing century, Mary -- the 18 year old elephant and captive star of a traveling circus -- killed her trainer and was subsequently sentenced to death by the citizens of Erwin, who saw her hung from a giant railroad crane. A one-man show, this shocking, poignant and powerful play finds actor Tim Powell giving voice to 10 different characters whose lives intersected with this horrific occasion -- including clowns, ringmasters, a minister, a hunter and even both of the event's victims: Mary and her trainer.

Mine is a universal coming of age around 30-ish story that takes place in Manhattan. It tells the story of Annie, a vulnerable and charismatic poet who never writes poetry. For two years, she has been dating Doug, a successful businessman who wants nothing more than to love and take care of her. She also has a deep connection with Sam, the slacker singer-songwriter who works with her at a neighborhood coffee bar. Sam represents adventure, music, and passion. Doug represents stability, love and home. Which path will Annie choose and how will she get back to the place where she is once again writing poetry and fulfilling her dreams? And in the midst of love, music and business, what is ultimately Mine?
