One summer evening, five friends gather to drink and celebrate a big accomplishment. Over the course of the party, tensions arise and truths are revealed as the group comes to terms with who they were, who they are, and who they are about to become. How To Adult, a serio-comedy in the style of hyper-realism, embraces and celebrates our constant-evolving identities, relationships, and personhoods.
Otto Sparks and Reggie Spencer are two online activists with dreams of changing the world.

But how will they know who the bad guys are? And do the good guys ever really win?

James Fritz’s Start Swimming is a surrealistic play drenched in political upheaval that asks what power young people have to create change. In a room: there are five people with nothing to go on other than their instincts and their desire to live. Is it worth taking risks when a misstep can destroy all they’ve worked for? How do they fight the unseen powers, that manipulate their fear in an attempt to abuse control…all when the rules keep changing? Using Pavlovian consequences, Orwellian overtones, and theatre of cruelty style, this play questions authority, the definition of freedom, and explores the journey of resistance and revolution.
