MEXICAN DAY
Written by Tom Jacobson | Directed by Jeff Liu

Los Angeles, 1948. The soldiers are home, Japanese-Americans are freed from internment, but the city remains stuck in its divided past. Enter famed civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, who enlists Los Angeles Tribune reporter Hisaye Yamamoto in a campaign to break the color line at the celebrated Bimini Baths. (Admission of non-whites is permitted only on "Mexican Day,” i.e., the day before the pools are to be emptied and cleaned.)

Blocking their entry is Zenobio Remedios, a war veteran who must weigh his conscience against job security. Rustin, believing he needs a white ally to break the standoff, tries to seduce disgraced art historian-turned-screenwriter Everett Maxwell to the cause. But Maxwell has his own history with Bimini Baths — and Zenobio — that will test the boundaries of change and forgiveness.

OPPENHEIMER
Written by Tom Morton-Smith | Directed by John Perrin Flynn

"I feel like I’ve left a loaded gun in a playground."

A man always isolated in the crowd, J. Robert Oppenheimer is chosen to lead the largest scientific undertaking ever. The task? To make sure the Allies win World War II. To make the world safe for democracy. No sacrifice is too much — not friendship, nor love, nor deep-rooted beliefs — but the way he will save the world could ultimately destroy it.

FINKS
Written by Joe Gilford | Directed by Michael Pressman

Do you know who your friends are?  

When the moment came to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) some artists chose to name names, others chose to risk their careers rather than betray their friends. Finks is Joe Gilford's farsighted yet tender tribute to his blacklisted parents,the real life story of young entertainers on the brink of success, who find themselves playing roles they never dreamed they’d have to play.

This production of Finks brings together Joe Gilford and director Michael Pressman, both children of the Blacklist.
