Den of Thieves
by Stephen Adly Guirgis
A hilariously dark and shockingly aware comedy. If you heard about $750,000 in a lightly guarded safe, would you do what Maggie, Paul, Flacco, and Boochie do? Follow this ragtag collection of robbers as they attempt to crack the safe full of cash despite run-ins with support groups, relationship problems, and the mob. Stephen Adly Guirgis douses this struggle for survival with strangely lovable characters, outrageous dialogue and hilarious situations in Den of Thieves. A FreshINK FREE staged reading.
A Streetcar Names Desire
by Tennessee Williams
One of America's most iconic plays. The faded beauty of a Southern plantation collides with the harsh realities of a New Orleans tenement when Blanch DuBois comes to live with her sister Stella and husband Stanley. The tension grows thick as the humid night air until passion and desperation spark an explosive encounter that changes them all forever. With great compassion and vivid, poetic imagination, Williams spins this poignant and luminous story of lost, secret desires, and abandoned hope.

Shot in crisp black and white, this film is based on the diaries of two scientists who explored the Columbian Amazon: German scientist Theodor Koch-Grunberg, and 40 years later, American plant enthusiast Richard Evans Schultes. A retrospective tale of vengeance, this is an intelligent drama that powerfully recreates the impressions of a world now disappeared and the fractious relationship between those who live in the rainforest and scheming interlopers. 2015 Costa Rica International Film Festival, winner: Best International Film; 2015 Havana Film Festival, winner: Best Editing, and Best Music. German, Portuguese, Latin, Spanish, and Catalan languages.
