Phyllis and her son Bishop are on their way to Italy to see husband and father Howard when their plane crashes and they’re left the only survivors on a deserted island. Survival becomes disturbing when what’s for dinner becomes who’s for dinner and they begin eating the limbs off the fallen passengers. After five years, they’re rescued from the island and two very different people return home. Watch the Performing Arts students take on this twisted, dark comedy about cannibalism, incest, mental illness, and murder.

Ronald and his friends are a group of “political activists.” They protest arms funding and fur; they take on school cutbacks and AIDS cutbacks; and march for gay rights and children’s rights. But when Ronald’s sister kills someone and they need to find a fall guy, their morality is put to the test.
