BKBX Presents: See Reverse
Broken Box Mime Theater
Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) presents a brand new set of original short plays with SEE REVERSE. Set to a fresh soundtrack and dynamic lighting design, the mime re-definers of BKBX journey from film noir to political protest and everywhere in between, asking audiences to take their truth and turn it upside down, inside out, and back in time to reveal something truer than they held at the start.

Houses On the Moon Theater Company
By Camilo Almonacid and developed by Houses on the Moon Theater Company
An English Professor is shaken when a student’s personal essay describing an act of violence from the perpetrator's perspective reopens long buried wounds. The play explores the long-term emotional toll of violence from both sides of the barrel, and the struggle to forgive others and ourselves.
Throughout the run, Houses on the Moon will present a selection of stories by professional theater artists and members of the community whose lives have been touched by guns.
By Adam R. Burnett
Set in a tuberculosis sanatorium on a remote mountainside, a community of terminally ill mystics transcend to an order of living saints and build a spaceship to escape their physical ailments. This dizzying and iconoclastic new work celebrates the power and beauty of the fragile body and the multiplicity and fluidity of identity.
