Everybody knows the story of the Good Samaritan, but did you ever catch yourself daydreaming in Sunday School and wondering if there ever was a Bad Samaritan?

Songs from Bedlam
by Doug Jones
Henley Street Theatre and Richmond Shakespeare
This staged reading, Songs from Bedlam, takes its name from Bethlehem Hospital, which in 1547 became London’s main hospital for the mentally ill. Like the exotic animals in the Tower of London, the mentally ill were on display. Songs from Bedlam uses this historical framework to explore characters who are, in one way or another, disadvantaged: homeless, schizophrenic, alcoholic, etc. What they have in common is that they are looking for connection: with a person, a Higher Power, or some kind of salvation.

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn't exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost.
One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.
ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite.

When Last We Flew
by Harrison David Rivers
TheatreLAB in association with Richmond Triangle Players and running in repertory with their production of Angels in America
Love, family, and personal revelation are at the heart of Harrison David Rivers’ moving new coming-of-age play, when last we flew. After stealing his local library’s one and only (and completely unread) copy of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, misfit teenager Paul locks himself in his bathroom and begins reading the landmark play. He soon finds that his life and the lives of those around him in his small Kansas suburb are about to take flight, and over the course of a seemingly ordinary day, extraordinary things start to happen.
