Mickey and Duck are two teenage boys trying to make sense of the world in the mess of 80s America. Through the music and culture of punk rock, they patch together a precarious identity, skating (literally) between the demands of an increasingly strict subculture and an authentic desire to break free from convention. A coming of age story in the form of a mixtape, punkplay is a theatrical love letter to loud music, irresponsible behavior and the beating heart of authenticity we all strive to preserve.
Tickets are $25. Preview tickets are Pay-What-You-Can.

On the night before her birthday (please don’t make a big deal about it) Karen, a woman in her middle years, receives a strange phone call at work: “Karen, You are in terrible danger.” Spurred on by this mysterious warning, Karen flees from her placid life into a night-long crisis full of vivid characters, strange coincidences and terrifying situations. Part Alice in Wonderland, part Nights of Cabiria, Karen is a theatrical, dream-like comedy about surviving the passage into the second half of life.
Inspired by pop-up shops, food trucks, and internal restaurant take-overs, No Fixed Address is intended to be itinerant, inexpensive and transitory. The company invites collaboration with local artists in multiple media, seeking to supersede boundaries that divide theatre companies and disciplines from each other. We are excited to inaugurate the company through our upcoming collaboration with Tricklock Company featuring the new play KAREN.
Performed by Katy Houska, Stephanie Grilo, Danielle Robertson, Amelia Ampuero, and Katie Farmin.
Runs 85 minutes.
No Fixed Address is a micro-theatre company founded by playwright Gregory S. Moss to develop and produce original scripts. Other goals include developing work by New Mexican playwrights; producing challenging and rarely-seen extant plays; and creating performance events designed to provoke new relationships and conversations in our community.
Music/Lyrics by Joe Iconis, performed by George Salazar, from the forthcoming UNAUTHORIZED HUNTER S. THOMPSON MUSICAL!
