LOST AND FOUND: A COMEDY-DRAMA about LGBTQ Teens
4F and 3M /No physical set: 
Lights, Music, Sound 

Eight teenagers laugh and cry as they tell their personal stories about growing up gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender in a world that continues to be perplexed and challenged by sexual differences. Among the most basic fundamental need is to have a voice in your own life; to be heard, accepted and to be respected. Perhaps the voice of LOST AND FOUND will contribute a little more clarity and humanity into a world brimming with preconceived ideas, primitive notions and prejudice about people who are not plain garden variety heterosexual.

New Release


Distant Survivors

by June Prager
based on the poetry of
William Heyen

Conceived and adapted for the stage by director June Prager, Distant Survivors is based on poetry by William Heyen.  The inspiration for this play came from several volumes of Holocaust poetry by William Heyen – ErikaFalling from Heaven; and Shoah Train.  He has created a most prolific and powerful body of work on the subject, confronting man's attempt to fathom the evil that spurred it, the responsibility for that evil, and insight into the nature of man. 

Given the rise of anti-Semitism across the globe and the increase of attacks, verbal and physical, against Jews as well as other ethnic groups, we cannot afford to forget.  In this poetic drama, we see the past through the eyes of a German-American who looks back on his ancestral heritage and tries to come to terms with it.
