Jewish Girls Don't Kayak

 written and performed by Robyn Israel

What’s in a name? For Robyn Israel, it’s everything. This one-woman show is a hysterical look into the life of this quirky Canadian and how she came to have her eponymous surname. From her Montreal roots to her California adventures, Robyn weaves an inspiring tale about the power of a name and its impact on three generations. www.robynisrael.com

180 Days

 written and performed by Taren Sterry

directed by Cheryl King

In 180 Days, comedian Taren Sterry takes the audience on an intensely personal and surprisingly funny journey through her first six months as a hospice volunteer. She hopes to help patients find meaning at the end of life, but through unexpected and humbling events, she instead discovers hidden qualities in herself that give purpose to her own.

Waking Up in California

written and performed by

Alithea Howes

In Alithea Howes' new one woman show, a New York performance artist returns to her home town to face the person that she used to be and the expectations she failed to meet.


In scenes both real and imagined she confronts her highschool teachers, her ex-boyfriend, and her 17 year old self all of whom expected her to be famous by now.


Along the way she realizes that it's better to be happy than to be famous, better to be working than to be promising, and that it's not so bad being from California, as long as she doesn't have to stay there.
