    Princess AnybodyFeaturing: Macy Lanceta, Charlotte Arnoux, Olivia Rose Baressi, Thea McCarten
    Aurore is unable to decide who she might be; Snow White struggles with body issue; the little mermaid discovers a terrible secret upon her entrance to womanhood. Princess Anybody explores the dark and twisted side of the world and the real-life problems a ‘‘princess’’ might encounter.

    The Boxer is a monologue from the perspective of Alex, who has to confront his greatest rival in the boxing ring of his own device. Through his confessions, we discover the lost bits of a doomed family’s collective memories, and become acquainted for the first time, an aspect of loss that’s perhaps intangible but nevertheless destructive.
