HALLOWEEN SHOW VII:
SUICIDE SLEEP
by aaron kopec


After months of unemployment and with a relationship on the rocks,
Rick is looking for a fresh start.
In an attempt to save money, he moves into a small room adjacent to a loud bar.
Soon Rick finds himself in a hazy state of insomnia-driven delusions, lost time and waking nightmares in which he partakes in deceitful and violent acts against his girlfriend Lynn and her estranged sister Sarah.


SUICIDE SLEEP is a fast-paced tale of horror packed full of twists, shocking moments and under-your-skin thoughts that will keep you up at night.
DON'T FALL ASLEEP.
       you may enjoy your nightmares.
DON'T WAKE UP.
      they may just be real.

the second show of the New York Stories trilogy:
THE KING OF POP
by Eddie Valentine

 

In an unbalanced world made of fact and fiction, the glamorous elite fight to keep the drab in the shadows where they belong.
And then a new ruler takes the throne and begins granting superstardom and 15 minutes of fame to the commoners.

 

A semi-factual tale of the art scene of the 60's and 70's in New York City and how it impacted fame, fortunes, social brackets and the very understanding of what art may be.

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW LIVE

A humorous tribute to the  science fiction and  horror B movies of the late 1940s through to the early 1970s, the musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad  transvestite scientist unveiling his new creation, a muscle man named Rocky Horror.

But there will be jumping.
To the left.
