The Lounge Series: No. 1

In small town Nebraska, a young woman named Jenny shows up at the doorstep of her estranged best friend Tina after she was drugged and raped by someone who offered her a ride home from work. When Jenny is denied emergency contraception by a pharmacist for religious reasons, the consequences affect both the women’s lives more than either of them bargained for.

Unblessedwas written over the last year and workshopped at our monthly Pack meetings.  We are so excited to share it with you and hear what you think.

Featuring:  Gayton Scott*, Kat Garson, Polly Lee*, Gerald Kimble, Mark Watson, Christina Shipp* and Julian Stetkevych*.

The Lounge Series – Adam Szymkowicz’s Elsewhere

Packawallop Productions is proud to kick off The Lounge Series.

Lounge Logo

The Lounge Series is a program of new works of film and theater presented throughout the year in the style you’ve come to expect from Packawallop – stylish, sassy … and, naturally, with some cocktails.

Please join us at our first Lounge on Monday April 20th where we will present Adam Szymkowicz’s new play “Elsewhere” which was specially written for Packawallop Community Artists Susan Louise O’Connor, Polly Lee and Travis York. It will be directed by Scott Ebersold.

“When Teddy comes to Celia’s house to deliver a package, he doesn’t expect to be invited for dinner. When he comes to dinner, he doesn’t expect to be invited to live there. When he starts to live there, he doesn’t expect to be drugged or buried. And he certainly doesn’t expect Amanda, nor she him. A play about the unexpected, unearthed and elsewhere.”

Reservations are essential, please email info@packawallop.org to secure a seat.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Cheers!




About Packawallop Productions

Packawallop Productions is a non-profit theater and film production company. At the heart of Packawallop’s values is a belief that the conventions inherent in theater and film reveal truths about the nature of human relations, especially when dealing with issues of sexuality, gender and culture. Packawallop is an artistic home for artists who want to create new productions via a rigorous aesthetic investigation of the media of theater and film. It is also a home for audiences who wish to explore these issues in exciting and surprising ways. Both the artists and audiences involved with the work will make discoveries about themselves and the world around them as a result. We consider our audience as part of our collaborative community and we treat each show as an extended cocktail party.
