And some of these new plays are already gone, so if you didn’t see them then you might never get a chance to see them again. And you’ll have to live with that.

New plays! Nine of them! Including the first-ever TML play for Lily Mooney! Lily joins an eight-strong ensemble including herself, Brenda, Tif, Megan, Trevor, Ryan, Malic, and Leah.
