Our third Flux Sunday was jam-packed with actors, but after some last-minute playwright dropouts, I sent two additional new plays into the breach, and highlights included:

-Sarah Amandes’ mad professor Siegfried in The Draper’s Eye,  nailing the German and the passion both

-Matthew Trumbull’s loving portrayal of the somewhat bumbling but definitely smitten history professor Bob in The Rainy Season

-Pete Boisvert’s direction of Encryption, which weaved in and out of memory and the present with grace and humor

-Alberto and Lauren capturing the heat between Jed and Elsie in the basketball seduction of The Iron Hours – this was also Murdock’s first swing at directing, and he nailed it!

If you were there, what did you take away from this Flux Sunday?
