Playwright Gene Gore tells the story of her own life in Cheesecake & Demerol, a wry and witty solo show that was named one of the best of the 2012 San Francisco Fringe Festival. Although born in the South during the Great Depression, Gene was not your typical Southern belle. She was much more interested in helping her ophthalmologist father surgically remove eyeballs than attend debutant balls in taffeta. But she gave up her dreams of medicine to marry a doctor and raise four children. When she finds herself pregnant yet again and her marriage starts to fall apart, what is she going to do next?

Deal With The Dragon
Written and Performed by Kevin Rolston
Can Hunter find love before another incineration? All he needs to do is grow up, get a job, get out of debt and get the hell away from his roommate. But every time Hunter faces a problem the guy comes to his rescue, and whoever caused the problem ends up a pile of ash. BTW: His roommate’s a dragon.
Date Night at Pet Emergency
Written and Performed by Lisa Rothman
Lisa’s not sure who she should kill: her dog or her husband? The prognosis isn’t good for Sophie the cocker spaniel. Is it any better for her marriage? Ever since Baby #2 hit the scene, Lisa and Kevin have been fighting over sippy cups, fruit salad and impenetrable origami instructions — at the bowling alley, the dog park and the dinosaur exhibit at the science museum. Now Kevin is storming around the emergency pet clinic, ranting about the $2,000 vet bill. How could they have foreseen this? Whoever heard of a dog ODing on antibiotics?! Lisa doesn’t know what to do. All she knows is that this has got to be the worst date night ever.
Black Virgins are Not for Hipsters
Written and Performed by Echo Brown
Echo is about to lose her virginity to a good-looking white hipster that she met on Craigslist. This will happen in 10 minutes. That gives Echo just enough time to do exactly what you shouldn’t do the first time you are about to get laid: contemplate America’s racial problems. Echo is black. So she’s use to pondering race. But she doesn’t want to ponder race IN THIS MOMENT. Right now, all she wants to do is convince herself that she’s beautiful, despite a lifetime of conditioning to the contrary. To make herself believe in her own beauty, Echo will pray to all of the gods, call her best friend over 20 times and talk to her cat about the meaning of life.
