2am Lovely

By Irene Loy
Directed by Heidi Handelsman
Part of the Linnell Festival of New Plays

When Jayden begins renting space in her friend Tia’s artist studio, she thinks that making art will be simple. It turns out to be anything but that. She finds herself distracted by what everybody else wants—her mother, her husband, the other artists around. Will she be able to focus and create her own original work? 2am Lovely is an unconventional story of artistic self-discovery.

Ashes Crossing Yellow Lines

By Kevin Hathaway
Directed by Matthew Yde
Part of the Linnell Festival of New Plays

When two estranged brothers are suddenly thrust together on a road trip from New Mexico to Minnesota to claim their fugitive father’s body, secrets are revealed that change them forever. Fourteen years ago, charismatic cult leader Ezekiel Ash tore apart his family after being confronted for raping a young girl. With the help of strangers they meet along the way, Cain and Abel begin to rebuild their family one painful memory at a time. Ashes Crossing Yellow Lines is a story of redemption as two brothers learn more about one another in 2,000 miles than they had in 28 years.

Our Town

By Thorton Wilder
Directed by Gregory S. Moss

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama transcends differences in culture, class and time, as it explores the eternal questions of the human experience. The story of ordinary families in a small American town and their journey through love, marriage and death is as relevant today as it was in 1938. With plain speech and a simple story, the inhabitants of Grover’s Corners are brought to life by a diverse cast of UNM’s finest actors, to create an inspiring story of community, friendship and love.
