Suspense and mystery highlight the first show of the evening. A career-oriented realtor and an enigmatic doctor meet in an infamous house that is on the market after its owners are gruesomely murdered. This psychological drama centers on the character’s attitudes and relationships to the crime and to each other. Appearances are deceiving in this spine-tingling tale directed by Tara Blake. Alexis Scanlon plays the realtor and Kirk Dickens plays the doctor.

The second show of the evening is “Chinamen” by Michael Frayn. A young British couple throw a dinner party for their friends and discover Murphy’s law is true: whatever can go wrong will go wrong. As the night progresses and everyone has a few drinks, the dinner guests become a little more truthful and secrets are revealed. The lonely husband rambles on drunkenly as his neurotic wife fights bouts of paranoid anxiety. “Chinamen” is directed by Adam Faw, with Jessica Lewis stage managing. The cast includes Lauren Eller and Will Izlar.
