    Johnny could be a typical 17-year-old boy, hanging out in his treehouse and dreaming of talking to the beautiful Alana, were it not for his insistence that he has the mind of a 53-year-old. As Johnny persists in his claim that he’s an old man in a teenager’s body and conversations in the treehouse become increasingly peppered by the words of the Bard, Johnny grapples simultaneously with adolescence, love and the mind’s ability to heal from great loss.

    On her first Sunday behind the pulpit, newly appointed priest Abigail faces a motley crew of worshipers and a church facing financial and spiritual ruin. Not entirely sure what God thinks, she gives into one wild night that sends her down a tunnel of doubt and fear. It looks like the church may fall apart completely, but advent has a way of turning fiascoes into blessings, and as Christmas approaches, Abigail and her congregation manage to find joy amidst the chaos.

    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.
