In Into, four strangers meet when they become stuck in a massive traffic jam on the outskirts of a metropolis.

As the jam stretches on for days, weeks, and then months, they must overcome their differences and work together, disconnecting with their old lives and building a new society, to weather their urban dystopia.

In Punch Up, the Most Pathetic Man in the World kidnaps the Funniest Man Alive to save The Saddest Girl in the World. Duncan meets Brenda as she is about to commit suicide and strikes a deal with her: if he can make her laugh, she won’t kill herself.

But Duncan isn’t funny, so he kidnaps washed up, semi-famous comedian Pat Wallace to punch up his material.

Will this truly odd couple be able to come up with a routine funny enough to stave off Brenda’s date with destiny?

Please note, both plays contain mature language and themes. Rated PG.
