Borrowing from the whimsy and farce of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, as well as soap operas and the Internet, this big-hearted comedy follows a series of supposedly perfect weddings that explode into a summertime fantasia of love in all its tangled combinations. A Perfect Wedding featured a three-story set made of steel, a 20 x 40 foot screen for video projections and a mud-wrestling pit -- designed by guest artist Leiko Fuseya.

Contributing writers include Obie award-winning UI alumni Rinde Eckert, Richard Kramer (thirtysomething), and James Magruder (Broadway's Triumph of Love).

Poetic and passionate, In the Blood follows the trials of a homeless mother of five who lives with her kids on the tough streets of the inner city. Five actors play both the small children who fill her life with joy and the adults who break her down. Lovingly comical moments are juxtaposed by the harsh world of poverty in this modern masterpiece.
