At this time, we produce only work by and intended for adults, and only in English. We provide publicity throughout Northwest Arkansas and handle venue arrangements in Eureka Springs. Now in our fourth season, our past performances have included a full-length multimedia play, ten minute play series, a poetry slam showcase, and a lyric poem adapted to the stage. We encourage the use of varied disciplines (prose, poetry, rap) and incorporating music, movement, video, or other artistic elements.
