d.arc water
by Kate Kohler Amory with The Hero Project

The year is 2114. Only one source of fresh water remains on the planet after decades of human conflict. Governing corporation F&R owns the sole rights to this water source but rival ENCO owns the system used to control and access it. The endless warfare has left 99% of the population in the dry territory of Terra. They exist on strict rations of water and food provided by the 1%, the Edenites, who live in a first world controlled climate biosphere.

These two systems exist in a delicate balance until a mercenary army, The Resistance, is recruited by F&R to regain control of the water supply. Enter our hero, Jeanne, a young woman with special gifts who joins the resistance in their fight.

With F&R's support and fueled by the call of their Gaian religion, the Resistance believes they are working to free the world's water supply for access to all. Or are they?

As Bees in Honey Drown at Callan Studio Theatre

As Bees in Honey Drown by Douglas Carter Beane
Directed by David Allen George

First-time novelist Evan Wyler is hypnotized by a mysterious woman, Alexa Vere deVere who promises success beyond his wildest dreams. Alexa is the "Queen Bee" of instant notoriety who captivates and takes advantage of the almost-famous. The world of celebrity is her religion and Evan becomes one of her faithful, ready to trade promise for popularity at any cost. "Fame without achievement - it's the safest bet I know!" proclaims his muse.

Evan soon discovers that he has been swindled by Alexa and stung by the dream of celebrity. But Evan won't be her victim. He wants revenge and pursues Alexa until he drowns the Queen in her own excesses.
