Nebraska Rapture is directed by Sadonna Croff and features: Jamie Schnepp, Monica Tanner, Danica O’Neill and Nick Lemmer. Billie Lou Riddle is worried about Toby, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that looks remarkably like a guy made to look like a dog. She wants to make sure there is someone to take care of him after she is gone. Emily Marks assumes that Billie’s planning a trip, but quickly learns that Billie is planning a longer departure “as foretold”. Emily is a perfect candidate to care for the pooch, because she and he won’t be going anywhere after the rapture.
SAL-9000 is directed by Nicole Clyne, who is making her Ixion directing debut, and features: Monica Tanner, Nick Lemmer, Angharad McGauhey and Tracey Dolinar. Jill is uncertain about her new gift, the SAL-9000. She isn’t sure she can trust a sentient washer/dryer, all purpose service machine. But Jill has been hurt and in spite of the SAL-9000 lacking a delicate cycle, finds herself becoming emotionally attached.
Lisa Konoplisky is a Wisconsin-based writer, playwright and screenwriter. Her work has been performed across the the country. She will be attending the performance on March 25 and will participate in a talk back that evening immediately after the show.
