Curious explores the divide between illusion and disillusionment, dreamfulness and wakefulness, comical and tragical, with a double bill of one-acts for fall.

Written by Scott T. Barsotti and directed by Jeffrey Bivens, Jet Black Chevrolet—originally developed as a Curious Scaffold Project in cooperation with SAIC—finds a married couple in increasingly unfamiliar and terrifyingly psychotic circumstances, beginning with the mysterious car that appears in front of their house one day. Written and directed by Matt Rieger, The Flowers Are Dead is a modern depression-era tragic comedy about two families connected only by the stealing of a bicycle.
