Women Who Kill
Friday June 8, 7:00 PM
Todd Rosenlieb Dance Theater

Commitment phobic Morgan and her ex-girlfriend Jean are locally famous true crime podcasters obsessed with female serial killers. There’s a chance they may still have feelings for each other, but co-dependence takes a back seat when Morgan meets the mysterious Simone during her Food Coop shift. Blinded by infatuation, Morgan quickly signs up for the relationship, ignoring warnings from friends that her new love interest is practically a stranger.

New to Sao Paulo, Elias divides his days between working in a cloth factory and fleeting encounters with other men. As the end of the year approaches, work intensifies, and he finds himself increasingly trapped within the factory. With limited free time, he attempts to etch his place in new social circles and to assert the possibility of new relationships.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane 
Sunday, June 10, 4:00 PM
Wells Theater

A cultish horror favorite, 1962's What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? will make you think twice before hungrily unveiling a covered plate of food. Bette Davis stars as Jane Hudson, a onetime child actress and singer. As an elderly woman, she wishes to revive her vaudevillian career, but she has become a grotesque caricature of her former self. Over the years as her star faded, the star of her older sister Blanche (Joan Crawford) rose, outshining the career of the has-been Baby Jane.
