I recently had an "epissany" that changed my life. It was an awful revelation around white privilege and personal racism that left me stunned, then pissed. I was convinced that what I'd realized couldn't be true so I went off to prove myself wrong. Annoyingly, over the next several months, all I managed to do was further support my first "epissany." During all of this, I was left with the knowledge that I was in a unique position to share a different social outlook. This is my first experiment at learning to meaningfully share.

A chronically-single guy takes a trip around the world hoping to change his luck with love. An unflinching look at how men feel about sex, love, marriage, and massage parlors. Adult language and adult situations, including a visit to a body spa named The Curious Finger. Writer-performer Randy Ross is the author of the comedy novel, "God Bless Cambodia." In 2007, Ross took a trip around the world and learned to say in three languages: “Speak English?” “Got Pepto-Bismol?” and “Where is evacuation helicopter?” The trip inspired his novel and one-man show, which has been featured at fringe festivals in the U.S., Canada, and Edinburgh, Scotland.

From the creator of the acclaimed Boom! An International Lost and Found Family Marching Band, and Mask of the Broken Heart, Write to Me is a love letter to letter-writing. Inspired by a box of 200 received letters, Stephanie Roberts dares to reach across the divide of time and place (and fourth wall) as she reveals and embodies ink on a page. Through physical storytelling, audience interaction, and live music by cellist Alex Williams, Write to Me journeys through a landscape of lost and found human connection. Audience members are encouraged to bring their own saved letters. facebook.com/stephrobertsslowburn
