POWERHOUSE @ the Archway

On the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration, a young woman snoops through her boyfriend’s phone and makes a startling discovery: he’s an anonymous internet conspiracy theorist, and a popular one at that. Already fluent in internet fakery, irony, and outrage, she’s not exactly shocked by the revelation. Actually, she’s relieved–he was always a little distant–and she plots to end their floundering relationship while on a trip to the Women’s March in DC. But this is only the first in a series of bizarre twists that expose a world whose truths are shaped by online lies.

POWERHOUSE @ the Archway

Tom Bissell vividly renders the complex worlds of characters on the brink of artistic and personal crisis–writers, actors, and other creative types who see things slightly differently from the rest of us. Surreal, poignant, squirmingly awkward–and always just a little bit off–this collection is a brilliant new offering from one of the most versatile and talented writers in America today.

POWERHOUSE @ the Archway

Set over two days and two nights, THE NIGHT ALWAYS COMES follows Lynette’s frantic search across the city, encountering pervasive greed, money old and new, those who are benefiting and those left behind by a city in boom. Desperate for help that doesn’t come, she makes a dangerous choice that sets her on a precarious, frenzied spiral.
