Living Image Arts presents three poignant, powerful and funny plays about the untold experiences of modern American life. From Hurricane-battered New Orleans to the holding cell of a Women?s Prison to the Jungles of the PI, the characters of these plays struggle, with beauty and humor, to return to a life now unrecognizable. featuring Counting by Maria Gabriele Directed by Christine Farrell Wanda is on her way out of prison after six years. Gianna is on her way in. Stuck in the same holding cell, an extraordinary and intense friendship emerges. While doubt about life on the outside consumes Wanda, in a moment of selflessness she shares with Gianna her secret of how to survive on the inside. It is in the numbers. Sparrow by Linda Faigao-Hall Directed by Ian Morgan New York artist, Tina (the Filipina Georgia O'Keefe) has returned to the Philippines after 10 years, 8 months and 27 days. But when her childhood frend Cris arranges a secret meeting, Tina discovers that she has become entangled with The Sparrows, a pseudo-terrorist organization, bent on bringing down the corrupt Capitalist Regime. Now they must both face the choices that life has forced upon them and the consequences of their lives apart. And before Tina is allowed to go home Cris has one more surprise for her long lost friend. Last Call on Bourbon Street by William K. Powers Directed by Alexa Polmer It's the first Mardi Gras since Katrina at the Bourbon Street Bar and Grille. The waters have receded and the sound bites have dried up. There ain't no customers and the Insurance Man is on his way to shut 'em down. But bar owner Benny and his motley crew of regulars, prostitutes, drag queens and retirees, aren't going down without a fight. The Insurance Man doesn't know what he's in for 'cuz like Benny says New Orleans ain't goin' back to the vines!

This is a wonderful show by a Brooklyn-based arts org. It's unusual to see such good new work. The acting is wonderful and the stories really capture you. An unexpected treasure!
