Asperger's Are Us is the first comedy troupe consisting of openly autistic people. As they say, “We're not a charity and we're not poking fun at Asperger's. We're absurd.” For the members of the Massachusetts sketch comedy troupe, it’s easier to associate with a faceless audience than with their own families. No matter who’s in the crowd, best friends Noah, New Michael, Jack, and Ethan have one simple mantra: “We would much rather have the audience appreciate us as comedians than people who have overcome adversity.”

Celebrated performance artist Karen Finley presents Venus in Retrograde, a performance in two parts — Grabbing Pussy and Parts Known — that expands on Finley’s career-long pursuit of performatively articulating the injustices committed by the U.S. government and society at large. The performance examines loss of love, dignity, and humanity, and issues a call to beat back with an exquisite heart.

The conflicts and possibilities unfold at a fictional meeting convened by Frederick Douglass and are elevated by the musical and spoken word format. Hope hangs in the balance at this most unusual gathering of suffragette, abolitionist Susan B.
