123 miles, three newly orphaned siblings, and a whopper of a family secret make for an extraordinarily uncomfortable road trip in Amy and the Orphans. When their 85-year-old father dies, sparring siblings Maggie and Jake must break the news to their sister Amy, who has Down syndrome. Along the way, the pair finds out just how much they don't know about their family or each other.

A clownish captain and his crew of misfits board a clunky spaceship in search of a new home. A band of southern slaves summons the spirits of their ancestors before a deadly insurrection. A substitute teacher struggles to explain the Holocaust to a roomful of restless Black teenagers. Shifting fluidly among past, present, and future, Some Bodies Travel confronts the dark history of racial oppression and reimagines the future of Black people in America.

Claude has found the perfect lakeside spot to build a monastery. As he and his assistant, Connor, take in the bucolic upstate New York landscape, some questions arise: Who owns this lake? Are we having a moment? And, what about our wives? New Domestic Architecture is a comedy about the spaces, both physical and emotional, that we build up and tear down.
