Join us for three short plays - Necropolis, Specter, and Ragnarok - by Don Nigro, one of the most frequently published and widely produced playwrights in the world. If you don't know his work, these three plays each performed by two players will be a great introduction!

In a room in an eastern European country torn by civil war, a journalist and a strangely detached young girl with whom he has spent the night discover that they are strongly attracted. 

On a rainy night a young professor drives on a twisted road through the woods near Princeton, swerves into a ditch to avoid a girl in a white dress, and finds himself stuck in his car with an outrageous and possibly demented young lady who might want to murder or make love to him, or both. This ancient ghost story is retold as a funny and frightening play about the relationship of desire to danger and the perils of relying on the kindness of strangers.

This chilling nightmare play is not what it seems. A young man and woman argue about the morality of experiments they are performing on less intelligent creatures.
