Inspired by a true story in the San Diego Reader about a young man rejected by his family for coming out, Tricks explores a single encounter between the HIV-positive 17-year-old, now hustling in a local park, and a closeted, older married man desperately searching for love. They reunite a year later, as their more authentic selves, to find the surprising impact each has had on the other's life. Playwright Bryant Hernandez stars in this world-premiere production from Chronos Theatre. Learn More

A fun one man show full of pop culture references and hilarious dialogue (with unseen and unheard characters). The show is about a young man struggling to reconcile his real-life as an underappreciated tech guy with his fantasy-life as leader of an online army of computer nerds. At the end of the show, the actor engages with the audience about the development of his show and about the dichotomy of the modern world between our human selves and our online personas. It was a very enjoyable and thought-provoking afternoon.

It’s the most important day of “computer-gaming-geek” Steve Smolinski’s life. He’s about to save humanity from destruction at the hands of bloodthirsty elves … which would be a lot easier if he didn’t have to do it from his cubicle at work. In a tour-de-force one-man show, GAM3RS captures the chaos that ensues when one’s virtual world and real life collide. Written and performed by USD/Globe grad, Brian Bielawski and co-directed by Walter G. Meyer, GAM3RS premiered to critical praise at the New York Fringe Festival.
