    Three closely related Americans find themselves lost in Venice, Italy. Soon, time bends around every corner, and the floating city works its mysterious wonders on the trio who encounter lost luggage, the patron saint of heartbreak, street musicians, an almost magical 1950s Brownie Box camera and a self-proclaimed “travel guider” named Marco who is terrible at his job but impossible not to love. This is a play about longing and grieving and ghosts and heartbreak, all set against the funny and tender path toward healing. Sometimes you have to get lost so that you might get found.

    A family gathers for Thanksgiving in Vermont just as they always gather for Thanksgiving in Vermont. Some of them fly thousands of miles to be there; others simply walk across the pasture. But it turns out that both trips require their own kind of bravery, and sometimes the people who are missing are just as present as the people who gather around the table. The House That Jack Built is a clash of old traditions and new love; empty chairs and the people who threaten to fill them; and a family who prizes open arms, the sweet pursuit of happiness and the mysterious heartbreak that comes with getting what you think you want.
