  1. The Man She Was

    The Man She Was

    By Ric Averill.

    Product Code: MQ4000

    • Drama

    This gender-bending historical drama is based on Emma Edmond's memoir when she enlists as Frank Thompson and serves as a male nurse, spy and soldier during the Civil War. A "don't ask, don't tell" moment speaks clearly to the complexities of today's gender-fluid culture and the final life and death actions of the play give the story a Shakespearean feel, as she faces and accepts her own gender identity.

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.

    Product Code: MQ9000

    • Drama
    • High School | College and Adult
    • 2m., 3w.
    • 120 min.

    A psychological riddle set in the world’s most explosive region, Miranda is the mind-bending, existential crisis of a CIA operative who goes by many names. Who is she? What keeps her working in the Middle East after all these years? Why can’t she leave? Whose war is she fighting?  Who are her friends and who is the enemy? Miranda is in pursuit not only for answers to those questions—but also for what those answers might mean about who she was and who she’s become. This is a play that humanizes the CIA while not sugarcoating the moral ambiguity in which it does its job. Miranda weaves a taut, layered story of what happens as operatives become emotionally intertwined in the intimate lives of their assets against the high stakes of the agency’s work.

    • 2m., 3w.
    • 105 min.

    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.
