MEXICAN DAY
Written by Tom Jacobson | Directed by Jeff Liu

Los Angeles, 1948. The soldiers are home, Japanese-Americans are freed from internment, but the city remains stuck in its divided past. Enter famed civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, who enlists Los Angeles Tribune reporter Hisaye Yamamoto in a campaign to break the color line at the celebrated Bimini Baths. (Admission of non-whites is permitted only on "Mexican Day,” i.e., the day before the pools are to be emptied and cleaned.)

Blocking their entry is Zenobio Remedios, a war veteran who must weigh his conscience against job security. Rustin, believing he needs a white ally to break the standoff, tries to seduce disgraced art historian-turned-screenwriter Everett Maxwell to the cause. But Maxwell has his own history with Bimini Baths — and Zenobio — that will test the boundaries of change and forgiveness.

READY STEADY YETI GO
Written by David Jacobi | Directed by Guillermo Cienfuegos

In the aftermath of a hate crime, Junior High pariah Goon befriends one of the victims, Carly, the only black girl in school. While the town plans a rally "to destroy racism forever," a youthful romance blossoms and the two must navigate the pitfalls of falling in love while dealing with the town's prying eyes, especially those of Wikipedia Jones, the crime-solving son of the Chief of Police.

Passive-aggressive antics, bad parental advice, and ill-informed gestures of kindness create a "White Guilt Perfect Storm" that threatens to make the course of true love a rocky road indeed.

FINKS
Written by Joe Gilford | Directed by Michael Pressman

Do you know who your friends are?  

When the moment came to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) some artists chose to name names, others chose to risk their careers rather than betray their friends. Finks is Joe Gilford's farsighted yet tender tribute to his blacklisted parents,the real life story of young entertainers on the brink of success, who find themselves playing roles they never dreamed they’d have to play.

This production of Finks brings together Joe Gilford and director Michael Pressman, both children of the Blacklist.
