Center of the World 
by Amber-Lee Davison
Directed by Jessica Hanna
Bob Hanks, son of Tom Hanks (yes, that Tom Hanks), always seems to get everything he wants - especially in his acting endeavors. But a major event causes him to question what’s behind his endless success. Is he as rare and talented as he thinks he is - the real Center of the World around which others can only orbit - or does he just suffer from a severe case of nepotism-itis? 
El Corazón de la Luna
by Joaquín Madrid Larrañaga
Directed by Israel López Reyes
As teenager Martín grapples with terrifying dreams, his father’s death, and a strange magical woman named Estrella, he never could have imagined falling in love. But when a cute boy shows up in his Catholic confirmation class, he must come to terms with his own homophobia. In this queer coming-of-age story - that is also an ode to Albuquerque, New Mexico - love, religion, and magic take center stage.
Each show will run 45-60 minutes with a talk-back with the author and director immediately after
Support was provided by the Edgerton Foundation,  Academic Student Project Awards from Occidental College, and Omar's Cookie Jar.
Admission is free!
