Cone Man Running Productions is proud to open their new space in Spring Street Studios with the revival of

A COMMON MARTYR by Michael Weems

Directed by Sam Martinez

Oh what the heck, one more drink can't hurt. Right?

Sidney's graduation was supposed to be a mild celebration - a camping trip to celebrate good times and his love of birds. As the drinks are poured, everyone's innermost desires come to light and the evening's course turns equal parts hilarious and tragic. Only the innocence of youth, the maturity of a few wise souls, and some fleeting moments of non-inebriation can potentially avoid total catastrophe.
