Made in the SVT:
by Adrienne Dawes
“You are safe here, Sister.” Inside the compound walls, five fertile sister-wives enjoy many freedoms. Free sleep. Free Welches grape. Free laughter. Free denims of every length. Set in a dystopian future (which feels a lot like the mid 1990s), Denim Doves is a collaboratively devised feminist farce that explores themes of women in subjugation and the hilarious consequences of a rigid dick-tatorship.

A musical sketch comedy revue focused on dating in the digital age. “Love Me Tinder” runs for six performances in SVT's Studio Theater.
In this high energy, comedy filled musical revue, “Love Me Tinder” asks, “What is love?” In this modern age, do our devices bring us together or tear us apart? From an elderly couple looking to “Spice It Up”, to “Hey Siri” malfunctions, “Love Me Tinder” explores dating with devices and relationships in this Chicago-styled musical comedy.
Tickets for “Love Me Tinder” start at $10 and are available online at www.heckleher.com or in person at the box office one hour prior to show time.
