IPE Night of Original Work

Blackbox

Directed by Tommy Doyle
You are one of hundreds, all of whom will glow in the cosmos of human achievement. You are an ordinary person undergoing an extraordinary task. You would do anything for your country, right?

Uncle Jim Called

Directed by Aubrie Ferris
The past is calling. We just want what’s best for you. You better pick up.

Mama Gone

Directed by David Newman
Rooted in the veins of West Virginia’s raw reddish hills, it is tradition that the hands and feet of the dead are cut off to prevent their bodies from breaking through seven layers of dirt. When this tradition is broken, Mandy Jane and her preacher father are left with blood on their hands, becoming haunted by the deceased. Faced with the decision to join the dead or stay with her scathing Papa, Mandy Jane must decide which monster is less evil.

A Real Doll

Directed by Ethan Dixon
Playtime takes on a whole new meaning when a preteen boy gets his first girlfriend. She’s perfect- other than the fact that she is a Barbie™. Do you want to play? A young teen starts his first relationship- with a Barbie doll. But what do their differences mean for their relationship and what will ultimately come of it?
