Jay has gone missing.
Her best friend Dee doesn’t know where she’s gone or why.
To look for her, Dee retreats into Dusk, a mysterious world, conjuring up the fragmented memories of Jay. She goes over their last days together with their group of friends, their conversations as they laugh, joke, and play around the cul-de-sacs of their community. But Dee’s version of events has become tainted by the absence of Jay. They are a way of remembering and understanding, rehashing what she missed, or what Jay couldn’t say to her. But they are also the only way she can hold onto Jay.
Day, in contrast to Dusk, happens in real time. Her friends worry about her, wondering if Jay even wants to be found. Dee is caught, between the world she’s created to hold onto the memory of her best friend, and the mundane reality of suburbia, where life must simply go on.
It is an unflinching and bold exploration of the internal lives of young women, and what happens when their world is shattered by grief.

The Curious Savage by John Patrick
Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, despite her grown-up stepchildren’s efforts to get their hands on it. Knowing that the widow’s wealth is now in negotiable securities, and seeing they cannot get hold of the fortune, the stepchildren commit her to a sanatorium hoping to “bring her to her senses.” In the sanatorium Mrs. Savage meets various social misfits, men and women who just cannot adjust themselves to life, people who need the help Mrs. Savage can provide. In getting to know them, she realizes that she will find happiness with them and plans to spend the rest of her life as one of them. But when the doctor tells her there is no reason why she should remain, she hesitates to go out into a hard world where people seem ready to do anything for money. The Curious Savage is a warn comedy that highlights that the neglected virtues of kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in a world that seems at times motivated only by greed and dishonesty.

The Sound of Music by Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp
The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "My Favorite Things," "Do Re Mi," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire von Trapp family must make a moral decision.
