    In a not-so-distant future, men accused of sexual misconduct are sent to The Gradient to reckon with their mistakes and get rehabilitated. New employee Tess is eager to hold men accountable and enact change - but it might not be as simple as it seems.
  • You're Crazy (a play with karaoke)
    Phoebe is getting married. To celebrate the big day, she attends a karaoke bachelorette party thrown by her best friends. The women belt and croon. Get tipsy. And then the world tilts.
