After a girl disappears in the cave country of North Carolina, the fates of those who knew her are forever transformed. This haunting tale blends the styles of storytelling found in Japanese Noh theatre and American ghost stories to question the potential impact of one event and the true depth of the human connection.

3 Amazing Improv Teams make for 1 Amazing Night! Meet Danny Canoe, Accidently Awesome, & Playdate! Danny Canoe is longform improv from Dan Sipp, Anoo Brod & Steven Warnock.

Accidently Awesome: Two Men, Two Friends, Six Eyeballs… Meet David & Travis, and prepare to have them meet you, the audience. Between the three of you, you are about to create a world where Accidents are Awesome, ordinary is interesting, and anything can happen. Playdate! improvisers create an environment based on audience suggestion. During their “monoscene,” Playdate! explores their characters hidden secrets, desires and connections. Play on Players!
Theater veteran Rus Hames challenges other Triangle-area theater artists to try their hand at stand-up comedy. This (mostly) virgin line up includes Dan Sipp, Jeffery Moore, Steven Warnock, Emily Sharples, Jon Kuczynski, Joe Mancini, and Rus Hames. Growing up in the 1980s with a proliferation of stand-up on TV and comedy veterans in their prime (George Carlin, Billy Crystal, and Eddie Murphy), Rus Hames’ love of comedy has recently been re-stoked by endless hours of listening to interviews with today’s comics on Marc Maron’s podcast “WTF”. Can these Triangle newbies find success without the assistance of playwrights and directors guiding their talents? We shall see, and you should come see too!
They say you can’t take it with you, but what if you tried? Reflecting on topics like space junk, yard sales, the diamond district, Hummels and television shopping, DEBRIS is a personal story about unintended legacies of things lost and found.
