Written and directed by Brian Jucha

TOAST completes a trilogy that started with 1997’s LAST RITES and 2002’s WE HAVE SOME PLANES, two legendary Infernal Bridegroom productions, the latter of which landed Jucha and the company on the cover of American Theatre magazine.Read more

Help is seemingly at hand when Chili, the father of her first “treasure,” Jabber, appears and offers her a chance for rescue. In The Blood by Suzan-Lori ParksRead more
