Lysistrata Rape Play by Mariah MacCarthy
In a not too distant future, American women have decided: enough is enough. Rape has to stop. In fact, they’ll give up sex completely in protest. As the enormity of their sacrifice sets in, sh*t starts to get real … deeply, uncomfortably real. A dark, dark, dark comedy.
The Butcher by Gwydion Suilebhan
In 2004, the butcher and sole proprietor of the Super Halal Market in suburban Springfield, VA ducked into the walk-in freezer to fetch some goat meat for a customer. When he returned moments later, the customer’s severed left hand lay on the floor by the meat saw, and a trail of blood led all the way out of the store. In the ensuing weeks, the butcher, his wife, a reporter and one innocent family try to make sense of this ultimately bewildering (and all too true) event.
