Acting Unlimited is pleased to present 18 VICTORIA, a new play by local playwright, Cody Daigle.
In a trio of interlocking monologues, 18 VICTORIA tells the story of three siblings -- Ben, Catherine and Stephen -- who are struggling to piece together their broken family relationship in the wake of their father’s untimely death. But a larger crisis looms. 18 Victoria, an asteroid the size of a few city blocks, is on a trajectory to collide with Earth and will cause an extinction event on the scale of the one that killed the dinosaurs.
As they share their stories of facing the last days of the human race, they also grapple with memories of their father, a troubled childhood, and their shared inability to connect as adults.
In an apocalyptic present, it’s the wreckage of the past that endures.
18 VICTORIA stars three local veteran actors -- Cody Daigle, Cara Hayden and John Snyder -- and runs for three performances only on May 16-18, 2013 at Theatre 810 (810 Jefferson Street) in downtown Lafayette. Curtain is 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $10.
For reservations or more information about the production, call 484-0172.

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the world that was Tilly’s refuge.

|Acadiana Repertory Theatre presents the first show in their 2013 'Only Connect' Season. The world premiere of Chelsea Marcantel's "A Place To Land".|
Graham and Rebecca are a couple on the brink of non-coupledom. Feeling too young to have been married so long, they seek advice and indiscretion from their closest friends, Casey and Miyo. But when Casey and Miyo discover that the closeness they truly want comes from each other, a hilarious downward spiral of secret-revealing, feelings-hurting, and self-discovery is initiated. Why is it sometimes so much sadder to see a couple stay together than to see one break up? And why do the most revealing and tense moments of our lives so often take place at mealtime? As funny as it is heartfelt, A Place to Land is a new relationship examination for a new generation, whose themes are as familiar as the voices inside your head.
Featuring: Gabe Ortego, Erica Jure, Lindsey Fite Finley and Steven R. Landry
Directed by: Kate S. Schneider
