Two short plays by playwrights Ami Gladstone (The Trolley Car), directed by Rachel Peake and Adam Underwood (Coffee Makes Me Cry), directed by Sarah Rodgers. Occupied Germany sets the background for a secret love affair in Ami Gladstone’s deeply poetic work, while comedy reigns supreme in Adam Underwood’s modern-day fable of a blind date that goes horribly wrong.
