SILVER TO A TRADING AGENT
by Sharyn Rothstein
directed by Michael Silverstone
with Bill Cwikowski*, Richmond Hoxie*, Ilene Kristen*, Aidan O'Shea, Jane Pfitsch and Patricial Randell*
It's the fall of 2007 and the economy has just started to teeter on its axis. Catherine Murdoch is the head of wealth management at one of the world's biggest banks, and she's known for her commitment to honest investing. But when she's passed over for CEO, Catherine must choose whether to hold fast to her ideals or to engage in riskier - and more rewarding - investing on behalf of her clients. Wall Street, the current economic meltdown, the role of women and whistleblowing collide in this new play about some of the dirty choices that got us where we are today.

BURY THE IRON HORSE
by Michael Lew
with Louis Changchien, Cindy Cheung*, Jackie Chung, Eunice Ha and Natalie Kim
"This is it, bitches: Iron Horse Park."
This is the Seattle park where three sisters reunite after a long estrangement.
This is where their parents fell in love and started a salmon cannery.
This is where Dad took them on hikes and Mom skinned salmon.
This is where Dad left them.
Through six interwoven camping trips, a family comes together and falls apart, and three sisters return to bury the Iron Horse.
