These are some facts of the world: The bad times began when we had a serious problem with the sun. That was when we came to the facility. Soon after, the animals died; then the plants died; then the oceans burnt and microbes took over. (When we say “bad times,” we are not kidding.)

But the Research gives us a way forward. Perhaps human will, properly cultivated, can change the Facts we don’t like. It’s worth a shot, anyway. The Work is slow. The Research is evolving. This is all we have. But we try to keep a good attitude!! :)

Certain individuals, when paired, have a special aptitude for the Work: Conduits and Conductors. 

You will now observe a Conduit and Conductor at Work.

A darkly comic take on cultish pseudoscience, self-improvement, and life after the end of the world, Subject to Control shows a pair of individuals striving toward the next level of human consciousness but scraping against the daily reality of hunger, bowel movements, sexual arousal, and grueling repetition.

May 19th - June 4th. Tickets and more info available at:

Glass Half Full Theatre presents the next installment of their live comedy series
Missionary Position: Pleasure Journeys for the Intrepid Lady Explorer (Session 3).

Tickets: Sliding scale $15-$25
8PM Thursdays – Saturdays

 Amelia Weatherbeaten (Caroline Reck) and Eleanor Dangerbottom (Cami Alys) are Victorian-era Lady Explorers and Spokeswomen for Hartman’s Hygenic Towellettes for Ladies, the first commercially available menstrual products for women. They travel around the world at the turn of the 19th century, hocking their products and lecturing hilariously on topics of interest to the Ladies Society for Ladies, Where Ladies Share Knowledge with Ladies. (That’s you.) 
The topic for Session Three is Riding your Bicycle to Freedom and Other Lofty Apogee. Matron Dangerbottom and Mistress Weatherbeaten shall inspire all ladies on the wobbly path to Suffrage and instruct them on the etiquette of “riding astride.”  Part P.T. Barnum sideshow, part Victorian Geographical Salon, these ladies will offer a seat at their table but you won’t stay in it for long. Anticipate a raucous, interactive, inventive evening that kicks the stuffing out of stuffy “period” theater.
