Book by  Anthony Drewe
Music by  George Stiles
Lyrics by  Anthony Drewe
Based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Ugly Duckling.

A heart-warming tale and a quackingly good time, HONK! is a deeply moving, creatively masterful adaptation of one of the most beloved fables of all time.Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on adventure of self-discovery all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.

Reckless

Wednesday, November 12, to Saturday, November 15, 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 16, 2:00 p.m.

Written by Craig Lucas. Produced Off-Broadway by the Production Company, this richly inventive and often startling dark comedy marked the arrival of an exceptionally imaginative and resourceful young playwright. Filled with bizarre characters and events, the play reflects the fractured life-styles which have become the norm for so many in our tenuous times.

Meggan Gould, “Traces of Vision”

Using photography, Gould exploits, or even subverts, the usual legibility of the photographic document, by arresting our vision at an ostensibly superficial level of mutable, mundane surfaces. She captures layers of visual information that are not the primary photographic image, but the traces left after viewing the image.
