A husband and wife stubbornly soldier on through an unhappy marriage, despite the poison their relationship has become. THE STEW is an offbeat comedy simmering with passive-aggression and absurdity in a stylized 1970s world, reminding us of a very important lesson: what you put out into the world will always find its way back to you.

After a long work week, Deborah is exhausted and needs to relax. One part of her psyche, Sexy Deb, appears and tries to bully her into going out to a bar for a hook-up. Soulful Deb also shows up- she lights some incense and tries to guide her into some self care stroking. Then Scaredy Deb pops in and whines that she just wants to eat oatmeal and watch Gilmore Girls.
When they finally rally together to get-it-on solo, Scaredy Deb questions aloud if they've ever truly had an orgasm, undermining each aspect of the Debs and threatening to derail their whole plan.
Through laughter and introspection, ME TIME explores women's sexuality, self care, and highlights the richness of our inner lives.

Based on a short story by Man Booker Prize winning author George Saunders, Adams is a very dark comedy starring Patton Oswalt and Fred Armisen. Oswalt plays Roger, a regular guy who's always been suspicious of Adams (Armisen), his pretentious next door neighbor. One day Roger comes home to find Adams standing in his kitchen in his underwear. The allegorical conflict that ensues explores themes like fear of the other and anti-intellectualism that are very much of the moment in America today.
