Game Night

​​
GAME NIGHT is a brand-new modern day farce that follows the hilarious highs and even funnier lows of a gay couple who are only weeks away from their wedding. However, they become obsessed with getting their picture in The New York Times' engagement section after learning the paper has started including same sex couples.

 

Things go terribly awry when they learn they have a mutual friend with  the editor from The Times, and manage to invite him to one of their weekly "game nights." From one small lie comes many other tall tales, and with another gay couple at the party going through growing pains, a drunken ex-girlfriend desperate to be the couple’s surrogate mother, and a straight Methodist trying to play a fabulous gay New Yorker, the game charades takes on a whole new meaning.

 

A hilarious, yet poignant commentary on the state of gay marriage, GAME NIGHT offers a hysterical look at relationships, childbirth and offers a glimpse of one example as to what extremes a gay couple would go to be recognized and counted.

Crescendo Falls

​​
A cult hit in late night theatres across the country, this hilarious six-part episodic comedy soap opera follows the backstabbing antics of its beautiful but deadly residents.

 

Crescendo Records in thrown into a chaotic power struggle with the death of R.J. Covington, its founding owner. And thus begins the greatest power struggle since the Carringtons and Ewings. In addition to outlandish story lines and insatiable lovemaking, other soap opera conventions are skewered as well. Women carry babies full term in a matter of weeks, tots grow to teens in a matter of months; characters who never leave the show tend to have multiple actors playing the part; and deadly peril is all in a days work.

The double crossing, bed-hopping and always perfectly groomed residents of Crescendo Falls will stop at nothing to fulfill their wants and desire, living up to the town’s motto with flying colors: Crescendo Falls - Beautiful People, Ugly Town.

""Judging from the first fast-moving episode, it looks like this town will be worth several visits." -- Michael Dale, broadwayworld.com

Audience Participation

"No matter what their inspiration, I’ve consistently admired Kevin Hammonds’ scripts for their acerbic pop culture bashing and playful participation challenge. I don’t care how sophisticated you are, there’s no way to sit apathetically poised on the sidelines of one of these comedic little outbursts." - Alicia Grega-Pikul, TIMES LEADER

Audience members act as guests at the wedding, mourners at a funeral, or a studio audience for a live television broadcast, even participating in the show by giving toasts or eulogies.
