Lauren Mosier// Relatable: A Cabaret

You know that moment when…

We’ve all been there, we’ve all seen it/felt it/lived it. ‘Relatable: A Cabaret’ is where we can all come together and experience those ups and downs together. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll say “read me for filth.”

Matt Storrs// No Bones About It

Every state has a state bird and a state tree, but just 15 states have state dinosaurs. One state, Arizona, had a dinosaur set for the honor in 1998 only for political infighting to derail the legislation. One boy, Matt Storrs (San Francisco Sketch Fest and Midwest Queer Comedy Fest), did not understand why and refused to forgive the state for slighting his favorite dinosaur. Years later, wanting to know more about fossils, a trip to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show puts him face to face with the underworld of the fossil trade. Matt unearths new knowledge of criminals and celebrities with questionable collections. Will newfound knowledge allow him to forgive and overcome the political slight? You won’t have to wait 65 million years to find out.
