In Antlia Pneumatica, an estranged friend passes away unexpectedly; his once close-knit circle reunites at a secluded ranch in Texas Hill Country. As they struggle to eulogize a man they no longer know, the friends contemplate their wild youth together, the uncertainty of adulthood, and their own inevitable mortality. Blurring the lines between reality and dreams, past and present, life and death, Antlia Pneumatica is a haunting and mysterious portrait of human connection.

9 to 5 The Musical: Based on the now-classic film and featuring songs by the iconic Dolly Parton, 9 to 5 is an explosive musical about three women coming to terms with corporate life in the man's world of the late 1970s. Determined to be seen and heard, Violet, Judy, and DoraLee concoct a wild plan when their "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" boss pushes them one step too far. Echoing stories that are still making headlines today, 9 to 5 speaks to a powerful and heartfelt message that a broken system can be fixed and that strong women - and the allies who support them - will change the world.
