Take in two of Charles Busch's satires with this outrageous double bill. Vampire Lesbians of Sodom follows a pair of bloodsuckers who have a rivalry dating back 2,000 years. Their immortal catfight rages through time with a dramatic flair-up during Hollywood's silent movie era when the two vampires become competing film stars. Set in London's swinging mod scene of the '60s, Sleeping Beauty, or Coma is a groovy adaptation of the fairy tale. High fashion, a wacky fairy godmother and bad LSD lead to a 20-year coma only a prince can break. Learn More

This is a powerful work presented by ACT Master of Arts program-- Featuring some of their best students. The work is well done and set in a Teen care home. Ursula Sarma wrote the play with the staff as well as the clients in mind. Its a topic that has been dealt with in other work, but this two Act play serves the issue of teen anxiety, mental illness and suicide very well.
Impressive performances by Anya Richkind who is perfect at a Schizo teen with amazing timing and heart in the role. Forrest Tiffany a vet of the Arts program is also a highlight in RIOT.
Of course the play ends on that topic ,, easy to see that coming. Slaights ballet in orchestrating that Teen age rage is amazing. The final battle with life and freedom is well done.
Worth seeing this play.. GREAT JOB to all and congrats to the cast - Vmedia
An unexpected act of violence lands Max in a residency clinic for emotionally disturbed teens. Was his explosive outburst the symptom of a mental disorder or a passionate act of love? Featuring young actors from A.C.T.'s acclaimed Master of Fine Arts Program and Young Conservatory, Riot weaves Max's relationships with his fellow patients, his doctor, and his nurses into a moving portrait of the deep human need for connection. Celebrated Irish playwright Ursula Rani Sarma's hard-hitting play is the newest commission from A.C.T.’s international partnership with Britain's Theatre Royal Bath.
