a full-length play, in partial fulfillment of Mint's senior comprehensive project
Directed by Amanda McRaven
Deanna and Cassie broke up months ago. Yet they now find themselves stuck in Cassie’s mess of an apartment, locked in from the outside. The situation forces them to explore the delicate nuances and comedic contradictions of why they came together, and why they fell apart. And all the while, an inexplicable force terrorizes them - does it come from within or without?

6:15pm
a double-bill of short performance pieces
Grass Crown by Julia Carrigan '25
Directed by Gina Young
Part meditation, part performance art, part theatrical exploration of life in quarantine, this short piece focuses on Sara With and H. Loneliness and longing power their gentle, but insistent attempts to make sense of a life on hold. Of how we can be so still when the world around us does nothing but move. Or vice-versa.
AND
Drown With Me by Jaiyenan English '24
Directed by Leelee Jackson
When Laila is young, she falls in love. Love is easy but loving isn't, and loss is harder still. Now she waits on the beach for the tide to bring love back to her.  An ode to water and generational lessons. 

Support was provided in part by Omar's Cookie Jar.
