Gabi Carrubba (Dear Evan Hansen)
“I Believe in Darcy Green” by Martha-Emily Harvel & Kelsey Christine McConnell: This sci-fi romantic comedy uses time travel as a device to explore the human need for belief. The show follows Jack, a man with a growing dependency on alcohol, and Darcy, a woman who claims to be from the year 2077 with a broken time machine. Darcy says that the only people who can help her get back home are her grandparents, but her grandparents just happen to be Jack’s ex-fiancé and best friend.
“Heartbeat” by Nathan Fosbinder & Molly Reisman: After her sister dies unexpectedly in a car accident, 17 year old Mina Poleski begins hearing an ominous, otherworldly sound, and she can’t get it out of her head. Mina goes on a journey to find what the sound wants, and along the way discovers her own connection to grief and guilt in the wake of impossible loss.
“The Valley” by Eric Fegan & Jamie Maletz: Four tourists believe they have signed up for a volunteer trip to help “repair damage caused by local elements” in Iceland. And, technically, that IS what they’re doing. But definitely not in the way they expected. And the journey they get wrapped up in brings the very problems they were running away from to the surface. t’s a road trip adventure set against a backdrop of mythical Iceland, with trolls, magic, incredible scenery, and uncomfortably small camper vans.
“ S.T.E.M. GRLZ!” by Andi Lee Carter & Judy Yin: A team of femme S.T.E.M. majors at a technical college form an angsty girl rock band to smash the patriarchy with friendship.
Producer: Jamie Maletz
