Now Now, Brown Couch
August 17 - September 2, 2007
The Theatre Building

For our fifth annual festival, we went back to what started it all: an old brown couch. Our playwrights created works that take place on, around and in the general vicinity of the couch. We also featured nightly sets with local up and coming sketch comedy and improv groups, as well as three staged readings, held each Sunday night.
