Las Cruces, by Vincent Delaney, directed by Julie Beckman
Not far from the casinos and the spaceport, Sheridan is camped out, hiding in a gutted trailer. Everyone knows he's there, but no one knows why. Except maybe a card player named Soledad.
Chosen Less, by Phillip Lienau, directed by Kelly Kitchens
A chance meeting on the street is revealed where two men learn the hard way that leaving is not the same as escaping, and that dreams can change in the chase.
Why Do We Keep Broken Things, by Carl Sander, directed by Tim Hyland
It's 2011 in Seattle: Mike McGinn is in office, Bertha is in Japan, pot is illegal, and the Occupy Movement is camped in Westlake Park. Five inhabitants of the city by the Sound collide in a kinetic collage of civics, sex, and estranged friendship, leading us to ask why some things change and others stay the same.
