    Poor Herman
    Written by: Elizabeth Doss
    A new play in development that asks how Herman Melville wrote two epic novels, Moby Dick and Pierre or the Ambiguities, in two short years. Though both were flops in his time, Moby Dick was later championed as a great American novel while even the most devoted scholars continue to shun Pierre. Through play, opera, dance, lecture, and museum tour, Poor Herman will investigate the fallout of Moby Dick and the ever-thin line between utter genius and epic failure.

    Break The Silence
    Directed by: Noel Gaulin

    Incubating for over ten years, from stories over bread to staged readings, from trips overseas to the presentation last fall "My Dad was tortured by a Dictator; I could've been a prostitute…" Another chapter in the question - How do past generations find themselves in who we are?
