Wanton Joy by George Gonzalez

Love has always been hard to find, but when you're unlucky, sexually ambiguous, hate almost everyone, and are obsessed with your mother, it's damn near impossible. Take a page out of Louis Crespo's life in this late night comedy and find joy and solace in the fact that you're nothing like him...then again, maybe you are.

We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay! by Dario Fo

The grocery stores have been ransacked! Suddenly everyone is nine months pregnant! The big business world as-we-know-it is turned on its head in this biting farce by the modern day master of Political Theater. Quick, hilarious, and brutally honest.

Homeland by Douglas Holtz

Local playwright Douglas Holtz (Loving More, 2003) returns this year to Mercury Players with a new script! An average suburban housewife is thrust into a world of deception and revolutionary revolt to protect her name and her very life. A disturbing and hilarious look at America's future, where even the Atkins Diet is a government conspiracy. A shadowy one-act comedy.
