A rarely-performed collection of short, creepy, pulpy plays with both spooky and funny delights by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Inspired by classic episodes from Tales From The Crypt, in addition to horror films such as Halloween, The Fly, Rosemary's Baby (and many, many more ghoulish tales!) this show made audience laugh one minute and scream the next.

I'M SMILING BECAUSE I'M UNCOMFORTABLE
Why do we eat? Why do we stop eating? This solo autobiographical show explored childhood experiences of queerness, to a college eating disorder, and to the performers' constant challenges of eating and living in a human body. Written and performed by Emma Howard.
SUPER SHORT SITE SPECIFIC FESTIVAL
Six plays were written and directed in a span of 24 hours (mostly). Hosted by Aunt Linda (played by Anna Rock), as our tour guide, we walked around promenade style starting at 420 Lexington Ave to view each play, literally on the streets of New York.
"Through a combination of Chaplin-esque physical comedy and decidedly well-written prose, [Emma] Howard reveals her own struggles with body image, trauma, and sexuality..."
- Leah Ableson on I'm Smiling Because I'm Uncomfortable, No Proscenium
"Writer, Sean Pollock, building on material from the film, has done exhaustive research and portrays his subjects with sensitivity, kindness, and respect... American Juggalo is an engaging look into a work very from New York City that brings light to the complexities of life for outsiders of all kinds."
"Super impressed with how it turned out. Having been to 10 gatherings and seeing all different types of Juggalos... I have to say I dig it and it's pretty accurate... we all come from different walks of life, each has our own trials and tribulations to deal with..."
- Rob Murphy on American Juggalo, Psychopathic Soldier Street Team Member
"Sean [Pollock] and Drew [Weinstein] have created a very different kind of show - documentary, emotional, exciting, confusing... I left feeling deeply moved. My mind abuzz and my belief in their passion confirmed."
- Theresa Buchheister on American Juggalo, Artistic Director of The Brick
