The Gentrification Cycle is a production of 2 plays by New York playwright, G.D. Kimble. An ensemble cast performs the west coast premiere of “Jen Tries Vacation” and the world premiere of “Locomotive Repair in Three Easy Steps.” In “Jen Tries Vacation” there are limits to communication. Jen and Finn wander into a magical landscape that tests their patience, their values, and their sanity. But have they landed on the other side of the universe, or just the other side of the tracks? “Locomotive Repair in Three Easy Steps” asks “What if Chekhov wrote one more short, morphine and vodka fueled act of ‘The Three Sisters’?” We rediscover the Prozorov sisters in much the same place as we left them, though a bit more broken than before. The glue of ennui has started to slip. But whether they like it or not, things are finally going to change…

"Birthday" by Michael David Ker

A comedy about one man losing it all in a year - his parents and home - and finding his way to rise from the ashes in an attempt to celebrate life.


Actor and comedian Tobin Mitnick dives into the grotesque and hilarious world of online grifters with sketch and stand-up in order to show us that the game may have changed, but the players are all still here.
