A prodigal daughter returns home, only she can’t get any farther than the front lawn. An exterminator shows up to clear away a suburban wasps’ nest, but a hunger strike prevents him from doing his work. Bathed in California sunshine, this funny and unsettling new play by alumna Diana Lynn Small examines grief, spirituality, and the unfathomable nature of love and reconciliation. This play includes mature content, adult language, actors smoking, and real Chinese food. $12 General Admission, $7 Students, Seniors and Children

Written and directed by Diana Lynn Small ‘09
Featuring Heather Johnson ’10 and Paige Tautz ‘14
October 22 – October 24 at 9 p.m.

MAD & A GOAT is a two-women show about one woman who, to free herself from college debt, joins a Wyoming goat farm she inherits from her occult-leader birth parents. There is seduction. There is beer. There are biscuits. And let’s not forget about the goats. The play has had workshop productions at the Fort Collins Fringe, FronteraFest, and the Cohen New Works festival in Austin, and we are pleased as punch to present this wild and rollickin’ all-Westmont-alumna work to Santa Barbara audiences. This play includes mature content. $12 General Admission, $7 Students, Seniors and Children

Devised and Performed by Connor Bush
