by Matthew Capodicasa

Tess’s mother dies just before they are supposed to leave for the ancient city-state of Mastavia to retrieve a package left for them by Tess’s estranged father. Unwilling to give up the mission, Tess posts an ad online for a traveling companion with her mother’s exact name, and meets a new Laura, a mysterious woman eager to escape her life. This unlikely duo sets off on a journey to this strange city of doubles, mystifying bureaucracy, ancient graves, and a hidden world neither of them expected to encounter.

Finale Episode: August 14th

To Thine Own Self Be True

by Shannon Chinn

Henry’s doing pretty well, all things considered. Sure, his dad died three months ago and his mom’s new boyfriend is an asshole, but he’s got great grades, a great girlfriend and he’s determined to have the greatest senior year ever, starting with landing a role in the greatest play ever written- Hamlet. But Henry’s dreams for a perfect year start unraveling around him as his life starts to strangely resemble that of the Prince of Denmark. With a little help from the Bard’s greatest work and some friends from beyond the grave, Henry finds himself on a hero’s journey of his own as he attempts to understand his identity, his grief, and that undiscovered country- death. To Thine Own Self Be True is a play of Shakespearian proportions about finding out who you are, and how to cope.
