Boy Gets Girl by Rebecca Gilman

Theresa Bedell is a successful reporter in New York who loves her work and the life she has made for herself. A relationship with a man would complete the picture and so she agrees to go on a blind date with a friend of a friend. Tony is attractive and funny, but Theresa isn’t sure, and after a second date she’s convinced they have nothing in common and sees no point in continuing the relationship. Tony, though, thinks otherwise. What at first seems like persistence on his part grows into obsession, and Theresa’s annoyance with Tony turns to terror as he begins to threaten her and those around her. Ultimately, Theresa must fight to save herself from being erased by Tony’s actions—actions which call into question the assumptions at the very heart of romantic pursuit.

“A disturbing chiller … the play works powerfully at its most basic level as a suspenseful tale about the unraveling of a strong woman’s sense of security in the urban jungle.” –Variety

Tasty Monster Productions, Heather Bagnall, and Luke Tudball are very proud and super excited to be returning to the Orlando Fringe Festival for another wonderful year with their new show

FALKLAND

Under the starry blanket of night two unlikely friends, an idealistic young recruit and a reluctant farmer turned Captain, find a new camaraderie as the big show plays out in the theatre of war surrounding them. Bitter conflict, questionable politics, and moral debate engage us in a traumatic, but necessary, journey through the lives of the two men and the many twists and turns they encounter on the road to redemption.

Written by Heather Bagnall, Falkland is coming soon to the GREEN VENUE in Loch Haven Park for the following performances:

Friday, May 19th – 7:15 PM
Saturday, May 20th – 4:30 PM

La Reina Yolanda is one woman’s life from childhood adventures to her battle with Alzheimer’s. Sometimes the greatest journeys are the ones in our own mind.

Meet Yolanda, a fierce Latina who we follow from childhood to old age.  Beset by tragedy, she leans on her sharp mind and family to land on her feet. An advocate for her family and the less fortunate, her mind becomes ravaged by Alzheimer’s.  She’s faced with the fight for her mind, sense of self and the family she has fought hard to protect.  When who we are begins to disappear piece by piece, how do we hold on to the essence of what defines us.
