Past Performances At The Alchemical


APR 7–10th, 2022

Girls Who Walked on Glass

a new theater experience

Three young women, three provocative stories.
Walk with them through seven different rooms and multiple corridors as their stories unfold.

"Girls Who Walked on Glass" is a new play in which the audience walks though living rooms, workplaces, bars and restaurants following the lives of three young women as their stories play out in three different sets of fully dramatized, interlocking scenes. This is not a mood piece or an art installation. It is fully-scripted and fully dramatized.

Developed by Tatiana Gelfand

Directed by Kelly Barrett-Gibson

Lucy A. Robbins, Rachel X. and Tatiana Gelfand

Polaroid Stories

a drama by Naomi Iizuka


A visceral blend of classical mythology and real life stories told by street kids, Naomi Iizuka's Polaroid Stories journeys into a dangerous world where myth-making fulfills a fierce need for transcendence, where storytelling has the power to transform a reality in which characters' lives are continually threatened, devalued, and effaced.


Inspired in part by Ovid's "Metamorphoses," the play takes place on an abandoned pier on the outermost edge of a city - a way stop for dreamers, dealers, and desperadoes and a no-man’s land where runaways seek camaraderie, refuge, and escape.
All these stories and lies add up to something like the truth.

Cast/Production Team: Allison Villasenor, Austin Sasser, LJ Brodie, Ana Armenta, Emma Burnett,
Katharine Ariyan, Nia, Spoorti Hegde, Alec Pacheco, Travis Charron, Kerr McKinlay
