FINALIST at the ThinkTank Theatre’s 2021 TYA Playwright’s Festival

Mendel is an imaginative, bright boy that finds joy in the most unlikely places. The only thing keeping this joy contained is the German occupation of his home city in Warsaw, Poland. When Mendel finds a German soldier’s camera while begging in the Plac, a new world is unlocked for him where he sees things as he wishes to see them. However, his parents know this camera, coupled with Mendel’s inability to produce vocalized sound, make him a target. As Mendel, his parents, and everyone around them grapple with the dangers of imagination under persecution, Mendel refuses to let his dreams be crushed.

The Most Epic Awesomest Superhero Movie Ever

By Matt Henderson

Directed by Hannah Hockman

Sunday, Aug 14th @ 5:00pm at Stageworks Theatre

A nerd, a jock, a budding teen novelist, and a geometry teacher all go through traumatic experiences and decide to become superheroes…or supervillains? They’re not entirely sure. Will they ever find out who’s the good guy, who’s the bad guy, and who’s the damsel (or dude) in distress? Will special effects be added in post production? All will be revealed in this comedy about what it’s like to be the hero of your own story…and maybe the villain in someone else’s.
