Two Women. Four Stories. One Play.

You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Burying Elephants and Other Plays is a captivating series of four one-acts, two of which are world premieres, examining the dynamic of conflict between women surrounding sex, love, class, and self-fulfillment. With two actresses playing all eight characters in four distinct stories, the production brings to life some of the most universally conflicting circumstances of modern life; circumstances in which burying the most evident elephant in the room eventually proves to be impossible.

In Neena Beber’s chilling 'Help', Gina, fraught with an upper class guilt decides to volunteer at a soup kitchen. Yet Beverly, who runs the institution of late, seems to be cooking more than just chicken for eleven.

Robin Rice Lichtig’s world premiere of 'Burying Elephants' tells the story of Colby, married yet in a secret relationship with Jennifer, who decides to take her girlfriend on a short summer trip to a far off cabin in a forest clearing. What seemed at first to be a promising romantic weekend soon turns into a life and love defining moment for both.

The world premiere of 'Between the Sheets' by Aren Haun is an intimate and witty explosion of sex, desire, and literature in the living room; a candid outburst of the innermost workings of women when they talk about men.

In Scott Organ’s 'China', Karen, a high-powered banking executive summons Elizabeth to her office regarding a catastrophic mistake that went all the way to China. What seems to start as a corporate mess soon turns into a most thrilling attempt to reassert one’s life.

Produced and Directed by Hadi Tabbal; Assistant Director/Production Manager, Lillian Meredith; Set Design by Julia C. Lee; Light & Sound Design by Shelly Rodriguez; Costume Design by Michael Sui; Media Design by Bruno Zalum.
With: Dana Leigh Snyder and Anna Ryan Konkle
