  • That's Fucked Up
    12 Sep. 2019
    A naturalistic play with characters so harsh and tangible, and dialogue so incredibly genuine that you get lost in the apartment where these characters reside. THAT'S FUCKED UP treats its college-aged characters with honesty and respect, while meeting difficult subjects and situations head-on. It's small cast and has the ability to be produced in any theatrical space.
