2017 New York Innovative Theatre Award nominee for Best Design

In The Dudleys! family memories are brought to life as a malfunctioning 8-bit video game. Vic returns to his childhood home late one night and discovers his old NES. As he plays vintage games from his youth, he starts remembering…and his memories become the game itself. By dodging ghosts, undying zombies, and evil Aunts side-scrolling through the neighborhood, Vic tries to win a game that might not be for winning.

Animal Kingdom
By Phillip Barry
January 30 – February 15, 2015

Hunger & Thirst Theatre Collective
Theaterlab, Inc.

Welcome to the Animal Kingdom. Beware of domestication.

Tom believes the romantic side of his relationship with his best friend Daisy has been put to rest, so when he falls head over heels for Cecelia, he thinks he has the best of both worlds…until Daisy admits that the old feelings never truly went away. Philip Barry’s comedy of manners explores the societal and personal pressures that lead some of us to give up our artistry to achieve conventional happiness, and others to give up conventional happiness in pursuit of their art.

The script presents a wonderful backbone to a show, but the writing alone cannot be relied upon to create a successful execution. The vim and vigor need to be injected, and that is just what director Jacob Titus has accomplished. From casting, staging, and beyond, I found the choices hitting the nail on the head." - Shoshana Roberts, Theater is Easy

"Hunger & Thirst Theatre Collective presents this 1932 work with honor. Keeping with the times in which it was written, conversation is a bit stilted, morals are constricting, gender roles are firmly defined, and the path to success is straight and narrow. The actors do a wonderful job of portraying the complexity of the characters amidst the pull and tug of human instincts." - Laurie Lawson, Electronic Link Journey
