After seven years with the same man, John is starting to feel a bit confined. But when he and his boyfriend decide to take a break, John surprises himself by falling in love with a woman. As both partners vie for his attention and affection, John is forced to make a choice about his relationship and identity. Called “uproariously funny” by New York Magazine, Cock is an investigation into the nature of love, sexuality, and social expectations.

The Apartment has fallen into disrepair…and he’s not happy about it. As Mother channels her grief over the death of her husband into elaborate cooking rituals and 11-year-old Janice hatches a dark plot with her dolls, The Apartment kvetches endlessly, longing in one moment for his occupants’ caresses and in the next for their deaths. But Janice and Mother are focused on their own longings, which take the form of Justin Timberlake and Harrison Ford, respectively. And then there’s the sister with 50 cats. The LA Times called Crumble “[a] sweetly audacious parable,” adding, “Ionesco never blended absurdity, terror and sentiment more strikingly.”

Tickets are $10 per show, or $18 for both when you use the code SEEBOTH! at checkout.Tickets can be purchased at ArtsUW in advance, or at the door.
